What advice would you give someone going through the same struggle?  (CASEY-ANN)  I WOULD PROBABLY SAY WHEN I FIRST STARTED NURSING SCHOOL AS AN UNDERGRAD, WHILE I ALWAYS DID WELL IN SCHOOL, NURSING SCHOOL WAS A CHALLENGE BECAUSE I WAS ALSO WORKING FULL-TIME. THIS MEANT I HAD LITTLE TO NO SOCIAL LIFE, SO I MISSED A LOT OF WEDDINGS, BIRTHDAYS, GIRLS TRIP, ETC.

ESPECIALLY, THOSE OF COLOR WHO MAY NOT HAVE THE OPPORTUNITIES OTHERS MAY HAVE TO SHINE AND BE GREAT.  (SISS)  Who was the most influential person in your life and why?CASEY-ANN COLLINS  (CASEY-ANN)  GOD, MY PARENTS AND MY MENTORS. MY CARIBBEAN PARENTS TAUGHT ME EARLY ABOUT BEING GREAT AND NEVER PUTTING LIMITS ON YOURSELF AND I AM SO THANKFUL FOR THERE CONSTANT MOTIVATION. I HAVE ALSO BEEN BLESSED TO HAVE AMAZING MENTORS ALONG THE WAY, WHO WERE THERE FOR SUPPORT AND GUIDANCE WHEN IT CAME TO GOALS AND CAREER ADVANCEMENT AND GOD HAS BEEN MY GUIDING LIGHT AND HAS NEVER EVER LET ME DOWN, ANYTHING HE KEPT ME FROM, WAS A BLESSING IN DISGUISE.  (SISS)  Where were you five years ago? What advice would you tell your five years younger self?  (CASEY-ANN)  FIVE YEARS AGO, I WAS WORKING AS AN RN IN DERMATOLOGY AND FELT LIKE I NEEDED TO CATCH UP WITH EVERYONE BUT THAT WAS A COMPLETE LIE. I WOULD TELL MYSELF TO MOVE AT YOUR OWN PACE, DON’T BELIEVE THE HYPE AND DON’T COMPARE YOUR CHAPTER 10 TO SOMEONE’S CHAPTER 20(SISS)  Can you take us through a typical day? From Waking up to going to bed, can you give us a play by play of a typical day for you?  (CASEY-ANN)  WAKE UP THANK THE LORD FOR GUIDANCE, AND USUAL GO RIGHT INTO A WORKOUT (AT HOME WORKOUTS NOW DUE TO COVID),  I HAVE A PROTEIN BAR OR SHAKE AFTER THAT THEN I SHOWER WHILE LISTENING TO MOTIVATIONAL VIDEOS OR MY FAVORITE SONG TO GET ME PUMPED FOR THOSE DAY. DEPENDING ON THE DAY, I AM PROBABLY ON MY LAPTOP GETTING WORK, REVIEWING PT CHARTS, CALLING MY PATIENTS BACK WHO MAY HAVE FURTHER QUESTIONS. I AM OFTEN DOING RESEARCH ON VARIOUS SUBJECTS LIKE THE SISS I AM. I MAY, OR MAY NOT TEND TO MY SOCIAL MEDIA (IT DEPENDS ON MY MOOD BECAUSE THIS CAN SOMETIMES BE DISTRACTING). THEN I AM OFF TO WORK. AFTER A LONG DAY OF ADDRESSING AND TREATING VARIOUS FEMALE CONCERNS I TAKE OFF MY CAPE AND PREPARE TO UNWIND EITHER WITH MEDITATION, WINE, SPENDING TIME WITH A LOVED ONE, ETC.  CASEY-ANN COLLINS(SISS)  What is your favorite book and/or the latest one you’ve read?  (CASEY-ANN)  WHOLENESS BY TOURE ROBERTS  (SISS)  What would be a good theme song for your life?  (CASEY-ANN)  LL COOL J “MAMA SAID KNOCK YOU OUT”, & CUTTY RANKS “WAIT DEY MAN”, BEYONCE “DIVA”, NICKI MINAJ “FEELING MYSELF”  (SISS)  When do you feel the sexiest?  (CASEY-ANN)  WHEN I AM ABLE TO SHINE, AND BE SEEN (APPRECIATED) FOR MY MOST AUTHENTIC SELF BUT HONESTLY THAT ALSO GOES WITH MY MOOD AND FITNESS ROUTINE, WHICH RENEWS MY BODY AND SPIRIT. BEAUTY TO ME STARTS FROM THE INSIDE OUT!  (SISS)  Is there someone on social media that inspires you and is a great follow?  (CASEY-ANN)  WELL DEFINITELY @SISS OF COURSE BUT HONESTLY, MY TIMELINE IS FILLED WITH SO MANY BOSS LADIES SO THERE ISN'T JUST ONE PERSON.  (SISS)  What does Smart is so Sexy mean to you?  (CASEY-ANN)  SISS TO ME MEANS THAT BEING A NERD, BRAINIAC, BOOK WORM “SCHOOL GIRL” IS PART OF WHAT MAKES A WOMAN ATTRACTIVE AND APPEAL. I BELIEVE BEING THAT “SMART” GIRL IS SOMETHING TO CELEBRATE NOT TO HIDE. INTELLECTUALISM IS VERY SEXY! FEMALES ARE OFTEN TAUGHT TO PLACE MORE EMPHASIS ON THEIR EXTERNAL APPEARANCE AND WHILE THAT IS GREAT, IT IS IMPORTANT TO TEACH YOUNG GIRLS TO EMBRACE THEIR BRAINS AND BEAUTY, TO BE CONFIDENT AND OUTSPOKEN, SO THEIR VALUE WON’T JUST BASED SUPERFICIALLY.  (SISS)  Thank you so much Casey-Ann, you are a great example. Keep Going #SISS
