Love for horses, passion for nursing
By Bev McDowell, Nurse Program On-Site Coordinator
Nurses Tressa Brown, LPN, and Destiny Fittis, RN, share a common passion for horses. Growing up, both were involved in the Warm Beach Camp horsemanship program as campers, Wranglers-In-Training and Wranglers. Tressa went on to work as a head wrangler and then led the horsemanship program for two years.
Recently, Destiny and Tressa reconnected through the horsemanship program where they are “doing what they love and loving what they do” at Warm Beach as they blend their love of horses and their passion for nursing. They spend time each week schooling horses, assisting with riding lessons and taking out trail rides. Together, they recently hosted a tack sale to benefit the horsemanship program.
This summer, Tressa will be the nurse for the horsemanship camps while she and Destiny will share the nursing role for High School Leadership Camp.
We are inspired and blessed by the passion these two amazing nurses share and their commitment to excellence in both the nursing and horsemanship programs at Warm Beach Camp.
