Meet June Thorpe, RN
In 1985, June graduated from the University of South Carolina, acquiring her Bachelor of Science Nursing (BSN) degree. In 1981, before getting fully licensed as a nurse, June operated as a nurse technician for two years at William's Jennings Bryan Dorne, a Veteran's Hospital in Colombia, SC.
Once she was fully licensed, June moved to Charleston, SC, where she worked as a nurse at Roper Hospital for over twenty years. She spent much of her time in the Emergency Room (ER) and Intensive Care Unit (ICU). She is certified in Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support (ACLS) and Basic Life Support (BLS).
After retiring from Roper Hospital, June spent a decade overseas in Europe, where she taught English in the southern part of France. She values her fluency in French as it allows her to work seamlessly with French-speaking clients.
It wasn't until her mother, Dorothy Thorpe needed help in 2017 that June flew back home to the States. Her mother had to move from her hometown of Camden, SC to Charleston, SC, so that June could help her as dementia was beginning to affect her life. June realized there was a dire need for caregivers to visit elderly or handicapped persons and conduct weekly wellness checks, help manage medication, and assist with doctor’s appointments. Thus, 'RN for Me' was born.
