I am Kim Chen, LPN and Director of Nursing at HSSL. I wanted to be a nurse just like my grandmother. I have five immediate family members who are nurses, so I guess you could say nursing runs in our blood. Following graduation from Fairfax County School of Practical Nursing. I started my career at Fairfax Hospital (before it was INOVA). There I worked Post-Surgery, Post-Trauma, and Post-Partum, and for a short while, I worked in a couple of skilled nursing homes in Northern Virginia. For the next seventeen years, I worked the GI Unit of UVA in Charlottesville VA. Approximately ten years ago, I moved to Warren County, and before coming to HSSL, I took a job in a local physician’s office. At HSSL, I started as a Nursing Supervisor before taking the Director of Nursing position. I feel blessed to bring all my knowledge and experience to HSSL. The elderly is where my heart is; it is my calling. Also, I have two wonderful grown children who I enjoy spending time with.
