MIDLAND, Texas (Nexstar) – All month we are highlighting the Remarkable Women in our community, sharing their stories and the impact they have made on others.
Our first finalist is Jenifer Dumire, a mother, nurse and a truly remarkable woman who found her calling later in life.
Doing double duty, Dumire is a nurse and a mother who was inspired by her family.
Dumire’s daughter Bethany was born with a rare metabolic genetic disorder. Her condition was so rare there were only about 10 known cases in the entire world.
It was a mother’s love that would inspire the next chapter of her life.
Dumire says Bethany inspired her to become a nurse, something she never thought she would do. With many sleepless night juggling her family and student lives, Dumire accomplished her goals and now serves her community at the Midland Memorial Hospital Breast Center.
While her life is still a balancing act, Dumire says she is blessed.
