Other information
OCCUPATION
She works as a nursing assistant in Utah, United States of America. "Since the [ski] season was closed [due to COVID-19] I've been busy. Very busy. I work as a nurse assistant in my home state of Utah. Because I finished high school early, I have been working a lot. I'm working far more than a 17-year-old teenager should, but these are serious times. I'm proud to be taking care of my patients in a time like this." (Facebook profile, 30 Mar 2020)
