It’s never too late to chase a passion
CHANGING careers is never easy, but that has not stopped a Dalby grandmother from pursuing her lifelong ambition.
Sheralee Storey spent 20 years in the retail business, before deciding it was time to start a career in nursing.
The grandmother of seven enrolled in a Bachelor of Nursing at the University of Southern Queensland, and will today collect her graduation certificate.
For Mrs Storey, the change has been for the better.
“You are never too old to study and certainly never too old to do what you want to do,” she said.
Mrs Storey said she always wanted to be a nurse, however the timing had not worked out until now.
Since making the change, she has excelled in the field she always believed she would be passionate about.
Mrs Storey has a passion for rural medicine and, during her studies, worked in Cunnamulla, developing care plans with local community members.
“It was such a rewarding experience,” she said.
“I helped diagnose people with diabetes and kidney disease.”
