“Let all that you do be done in love.”
1 Corinthians 16:14

This passage encompasses the whole of Tercia Sharpe.  Her spirit can fill a room with her bright eyes, giant smile and warm nature. From relationships with family and friends to patients and colleagues, Tercia is eager to celebrate success, ready to listen with a compassionate non-judgmental ear, offer words of encouragement and wisdom, and simply be present during our deepest struggles. Her humbleness allows her to listen and learn, gaining as much as she gives. She is free to be reveal her own imperfections, creating a good climate for others humanness to unfold.

I had the honor of working with Tercia for several years in Northern Virginia at Inova Loudoun Hospital. She is an extraordinary nurse and a wonderful resource especially for End of Life issues. During her time at ILH she started a Memorial program that honored the patients that passed while under our care in the ICU. This Memorial helped family and staff not only morn and honor those that had died but also to heal from that painful process. She taught me so much while I worked with her. Those lessons not only benefited myself but also patients under my care.
