Harris notes that, "Patients do sometimes say 'thank you' but they bring and give more to me that I give to them." Dedicated to educating the community about breast cancer awareness, she works in the American Cancer Society's Reach for Recovery program often giving presentations, which have been described as "informal, inspirational and professional."
This Kent County native began her career at the local hospital in 1986 as a charge nurse on the Medical/Surgical unit and has been a staff nurse in the Surgical Service Department since 1991. She received her nursing degree from the Maryland General Hospital School of Nursing in Baltimore, her bachelor of science degree in nursing from Colorado Women's College and earned a master's degree in psychology from Washington College.
Homan also notes, "She is the reason I earned a master's degree myself-Anne received one at 60 and I thought if she can do it, I can too."
