While a student at Saint Mary’s it was Luke Hofmann’s dream to work in the field of medicine. Upon his graduation, he earned a BSN from Maryville University, and during his clinicals he developed a love for working with children battling cancer.
“Every day at work I get to see the best parts of humanity,” he said. “Even in the saddest and darkest days, I get to see how love, hope, and courage always win. To be there for the kids and their families, through both the ups and downs of treatment is incredibly rewarding.”
