Meet Us Mondays: Shay Arejola, RN and PGD Nurse Coordinator

Hi I’m Shay. I am one of the Registered Nurses and the Pre-implantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) Nurse Coordinator at Genesis Fertility Centre.

A career in nursing wasn’t always something I imagined doing. It worked out well for me since I found out that my real passion was in helping people, although I wasn’t always sure in what capacity I should contribute to society. Growing up, I was constantly exposed to the business world so it was only natural for me to assume that a career in business was my destiny. I started down that road with marketing and sales and later on aspired to be a financial planner to help people achieve their financial goals. Needless to say, I never got there.

After vacationing to Hawaii one year, that career path didn’t feel right. There must’ve been something in the Mai Tai’s they serve you in Hawaii, but when I came back to work that year, I had a whole new perspective. All of a sudden, I needed something more fulfilling and more altruistic. Whether due to the Mai Tai’s or something else, I’m forever grateful as it was at that time, right after my trip, that I decided to do a sudden 180 and begin my journey into nursing. It was the best decision I had made thus far.
