Dr. Sanderson-Marcoux has been a registered nurse for more than 28 years. She was born in Trinidad, West Indies, and migrated to the United States 35 years ago. Like so many immigrants, Dr. Sanderson-Marcoux lived the “American reality” of working and going to college to pursue her life’s dream of becoming a nurse and an educator. She considers herself to be a “blessed” person, as she has the opportunity to do the things she enjoys, both professionally and personally – nursing, teaching, gardening and traveling.

“Good health, family and friends are all I need, the rest will follow.”
