Deborah Hoffman-McCully went back to school with a focus on nursing a year after her son passed away. A wonderful nurse inspired her, and she knew God wanted her to pursue this type of career in memory of her son. She began her nursing career in 1996 and then focused her nursing specialty in 2000 in the maternal newborn department. She worked in this field for St. Jude Hospital for 23 years when God called her to shift her nursing path to Biola University. She enjoys crafting, painting and spending time with her husband.
