All Together Now: In Sync with Coral Alonso Garcia
Coral Alonso Garcia helped the synchronized swimming team of Missouri’s Lindenwood University beat Ohio State, Stanford University, and … anybody in its path to four straight national championships. It was a lesson in leadership that she has brought to nursing as a master’s student at Johns Hopkins. “The most important thing I learned while training eight hours a day was, ‘OK, we’re tired. But we are already here. So we need to do the job well.’ ” Same with any health care setting. “We all have different lives, we all have different problems. … We are going through stuff outside. Still, we must depend on each other.”
