Meet June Thorpe, RN
In 1985, June graduated from the University of South Carolina, acquiring her Bachelor of Science Nursing (BSN) degree. In 1981, before getting fully licensed as a nurse, June operated as a nurse technician for two years at William's Jennings Bryan Dorne, a Veteran's Hospital in Colombia, SC.
Once she was fully licensed, June moved to Charleston, SC, where she worked as a nurse at Roper Hospital for over twenty years. She spent much of her time in the Emergency Room (ER) and Intensive Care Unit (ICU). She is certified in Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support (ACLS) and Basic Life Support (BLS).
After retiring from Roper Hospital, June spent a decade overseas in Europe, where she taught English in the southern part of France. She values her fluency in French as it allows her to work seamlessly with French-speaking clients.
June eventually returned back to the States to live and work in Charleston, SC, where her mission in life is to heal. Using her extensive nursing skill-set, June provides peace of mind and quality at-home care for individuals who are recovering after an elective surgery. Whether you're preparing to undergo breast augmentation, plastic surgery, gastric bypass, orthopedic surgery, or a wide range of other options, June and her team of certified professionals are here to help you recover at home and at peace.
