Heather Mayard, RN

Assistant Director of Nursing

Lafayette, LA

I have been a Registered Nurse for over 10 years, graduating from McNeese State University. Starting in healthcare as a CNA, then an LPN, and now as an RN has helped me to see how we all play an integral role in caring for patients. Working at an LTAC facility as charge nurse has equipped me with solid management skills and abilities. My previous experience in Home Health helped prepare me for this hospice experience. I can now say that Hospice is really the reason I became a Registered Nurse; I have found my calling in hospice and at Bridgeway Hospice of Acadiana. It is truly a privilege to care for the patients and families at their end of life experience and at their most critical time of need. When not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband Ryan and 6 children.
