NURSING HELPS ME TO INSPIRE OTHERS

Amputee

Nicky Innabit

I have only recently became aware that I have the ability to help and inspire others

Hi, I am Nicky. I was born without my right arm. It never slowed me down and my mom always joked that I purposely sought out the most impossible challenges, then tackled them like a rockstar for the pure shock value it would elicit from nay-sayers (she may have been correct!) I am a nurse, mother of 2 Laikyn (13) and Landon (10). I have been married to my wonderful husband Jacob for 4 years who is also a right arm amputee. I have only recently became aware that I have the ability to help and inspire others. Odd I know, but I was completely oblivious to the impact I had and all the good I could have been doing. Although I never held back when reaching for and achieving goals, for many many years I was ashamed and self conscious of my arm, so I didn't talk about it. Since becoming a nurse I've really embraced my ability to help others in every aspect including how I not only live and function, but thrive missing an arm.

EMPOWER OTHERS!
