Esther Tan joined OHC last November


Esther Tan joined OHC last November to help keep workers safe during the covid crisis. Here is her story: Nursing School: I had always been drawn to the healthcare profession, so it is no wonder I ended up in one. After graduating from undergraduate, I pursued my master’s in clinical counseling and practiced crisis counseling and family therapy. I had noticed the false dichotomy between mental health and physical health and felt a need to serve both. I started my Family Nurse Practitioner program at Boston College and soon joined OHC right after obtaining my RN license. Occupational Health: [...]

Vickie Puopolo Chipman RN started with OHC last November and quickly became an integral part of the team.  She has been working at Moderna, Insulet, and Pfizer. Her daughter, Ari, an EMT, joined us a few months later. Here is Vickie’s story: I’m not one to write about myself but here is my journey to nursing.

Back in the day parents had a lot of influence as to what field you chose and a “starving artist” was not [...]

Diane D’Onofrio’s Nursing Story


Please read Diane D’Onofrio’s nursing story – it will give you chills: I have been an RN since 1987. As a child, I spent a lot of time sitting in hospital waiting rooms as my mom visited my grandmother. I guess I always felt helpless because I couldn’t see her, yet I wanted her to get well and come home. I also had a great interest in watching medical shows on TV, especially those that took place in ER settings. I think my grandmother was my biggest inspiration to go to nursing school. When I graduated, I was young, [...]
