Chris originally joined the NYSIM team as a full me Simula on Facilitator in June 2012 and con nued with us per session during his nursing program. He is excited about star ng his career as a Registered Nurse, par cularly in the elds of Pallia ve Care and Psychiatric Nursing.
When asked “Why did you want to become a simula on facilitator” he answered “My rst career was in the nonpro t sector, spe- ci cally in the eld of Immigrants’ Rights. I was preparing to transi on to a new career in the Health Sciences when I heard about this opportunity to work with NYSIM as a Simula on Facilitator. NYSIM con nues to be an amazing resource for my personal and professional development!”
One fun fact about Chris: When Chris is not at NYSIM, he is teaching poongmul-nori (Korean percussion) to LGBTQ Asian Paci c Islanders and their allies. These drummers can be found marching/performing at various events throughout the city, including the annual NYC Pride Parade.
