Ijon on Kansas City
I am a nurse in the NICU at Children’s Mercy. While I was pursuing my degree in nursing, I made the move from the St. Louis area to Kansas City.
There is so much to love about KC – the nightlife, the barbecue, manageable cost of living, activities and events around this city, and most importantly – the donut options!
Kansas City and Children’s Mercy are now my home and I couldn’t be happier.
