The coronavirus pandemic has affected nearly everyone and every industry.
Many people have experienced the uncertainty of loved ones contracting
the illness, the frustration of quarantine and social distancing, and
the flexibility needed to adapt to unexpected changes in the work force.
But for Kingsland, Georgia, native Angelita Frazier, R.N., one thing has
remained constant through the years, and 2020 is no different: welcoming
new life into the world brings her joy.
A Southeast Georgia Health System Camden Campus team member for 15 years,
Frazier has dedicated 14 of those years to the
Maternity Care Center.
“I grew to love labor and delivery during my brief time as a float
nurse. It’s very rewarding, helping to bring new life into the world,”
says Frazier. “My greatest love is caring for the infants. Previous
to joining the Health System, I worked 10 years with developmentally delayed
pediatric patients, so working with babies is definitely my strong suit.”
A mother herself, she is extremely proud of her children and how they have
“grown into awesome adults.” Her four children include Tiffany,
33; Juan, 31; Chris, 28; and Javon, 22. Additionally, Frazier is surrounded
by little ones, courtesy of her three grandchildren: Tyler, 6; Madison,
2; and Anora, 8 months. In her free time, Frazier enjoys the company of
her family, reading and relaxing, however, she probably doesn’t
experience much relaxation on Saturdays. Although Frazier isn’t
a huge sports fan herself, her husband would say their house yells, “Go
Frazier was a hard worker from an early age. Her first job was in her great
uncle’s convenience store when she was only 13 years old, and she’s
been working ever since. As her career progressed into health care, she
developed strong morals to live by: honesty and professionalism.
“I believe in being honest above all and standing in our truth,”
Frazier says. “I always strive to act in a professional manner,
knowing that people are more likely to trust and respect me for it.”
Those values have obviously served Frazier well as she embodies what she
preaches. “Typically the charge nurse on her shift, Angelita helps
to keep the unit running smoothly and proficiently,” says Morgan
Mize, MSN, R.N., manager, Patient Care Services. “She’s dedicated,
always willing to help on the floor no matter what it takes, and works
well with both her fellow nurses and patients. We are so blessed to have
Angelita as part of our maternity care team.”
