Jerrilyn thrives from the motivation of her late Grandfather. Her late Grandfather had type 2 diabetes, and she felt that he did not receive the best health care services and resources. Witnessing this disparity of the health care system, Jerrilyn made it her goal to provide the best medical care to her community. She believes that everyone is entitled to better health care services.
Jerrilyn explained that the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the norms of the world. For example, in May, her daughter graduated from high school, and she wanted to celebrate her daughter’s accomplishment with a grand event, but she could not because of COVID-19. Instead, her family and friends celebrated her daughter’s achievements with a graduation celebration parade. With the help of family and friends, Jerrilyn provided a memorable and unique memory for her daughter.
“There is hope. There is life after COVID-19, and it doesn’t mean the end of life. We have survivors. We have many survivors that have overcome this disease. This is not the end.”
