It’s never too late to chase a pas­sion

Dalby Herald - - NEWS -

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.”
