Vedad Begic

Mongolia Profile

My name is Vedad Begic and I am currently working as a travel nurse in California. I was born in Bosnia and Herzegovina and due to a civil war, my family and I were forced to leave Bosnia in search for a better and safer life. As a war refugee I have lived in Germany and have finally settled in Jacksonville FL in 1999. My nursing career began at Wolfson Children’s Hospital 7 seven years ago when I decided to enter a profession in which I can focus on helping people. During my tenure at Wolfson’s I have had the utmost pleasure of working with exceptional clinicians and had the privilege of providing care to many patients and their families. It was during this time that I met Jonathan and his family. Jonathan has inspired many with his love of the world and I am honored to have been invited to take part in the journey to help others in his memory. I am beyond excited about this trip and am looking forward to meeting all of the wonderful staff, patients and their families at Mother’s and Children’s Hospital of Ulaanbaatar.
