Myra Russell, LPN, CNA


Myra views working in healthcare as a privilege. Each day brings the opportunity to improve the healthcare experience one encounter at a time. She brings nearly 30 years of customer service experience in various industries to her role at Crossover. Myra worked full-time while going to school to earn her AA degree before shifting her focus entirely onto the pursuit of her childhood dream of being a nurse. Myra is currently working as a LPN while actively pursuing her RN/BSN degree.

Originally from Phoenix, her greatest joy is spending time with her family, helping others, and serving her community. She enjoys cooking and baking, and she has volunteered her time doing both at community outreach events. Myra has also volunteered as a compassion ministry leader to bring home-cooked meals, clothing, backpacks, and hygiene kits to local populations in need. She enjoys balancing those efforts with camping and exploring with her family.

What makes me unique:
I am dedicated to improving healthcare in whatever capacity I am able to. I am known for my ability to find a needle in a haystack, my patience, and my positivity.

Why do I practice healthcare:
It is something that I have always wanted to do. My kids are grown and it was time for me to pursue my childhood dream of being a nurse.
