Roslyn Rivera is an adult living with CHD whose experience as a patient in the hospital led her to become a pediatric cardiac intensive care nurse. She was diagnosed the day she was born with partial atrio-ventricular septal defect and underwent open-heart surgery at 3 years of age to repair this defect. At 10 years old, she had her 2nd open-heart surgery to replace her mitral valve with a mechanical valve.

 

Roslyn currently works as a Nurse Educator for the Novick Cardiac Alliance, which is a non-profit organization. With a team of international medical professionals, she travels to developing countries to provide cardiac care and surgery for children.

 

Find out where Roslyn has gone, what her favorite memory is from working with the Novick Cardiac Alliance and how you, too, can get involved!
