She is an assistant nurse manager at Broward Health Imperial Point, managing day-to-day operations in the Emergency Department and meeting with staff and patients regularly.

“Working in the Emergency Department is a privilege,” Mancuso said. “There are very few other professions in which you help people at their most vulnerable. We have a tremendous impact on their lives. It’s incredibly rewarding.”
