Julie Pearce, 29 year-old weekend anchor for KBJR-TV in Duluth, Minnesota, since 2006, is both a broadcast journalist and a nurse. After seeing what’s happening in Haiti, she’s decided to leave the tv news biz and go back to nursing. She’s heading for Haiti.
“After all,” she said, “There will always be part journalist that runs through these veins. However, right now I have to follow my heart into an open-ended journey where I am needed most. And that is as a nurse administering to those undergoing great suffering.” -Duluth News Tribune
What a story.
