Nurse, Author, and Philanthropist, D.D. Finder

In this week's episode, I had the pleasure of interviewing D.D. Finder, aka, Delta Delta Finder. D.D. has had a remarkable 20-year healthcare career which has taken him from the Peace Corps to an EMT, from flight nursing to the ICU, and landing in Interventional Radiology.
Now, there is a new chapter in his life: author. And what does he write about? Something he is intimately familiar with.
His debut novel, Ready Left, Ready Right gives us a cockpit view of the intense pressures first responders and flight nurses endure every day.
He brilliantly accomplished his goal of bringing awareness to the extraordinary mental health challenges that these professionals struggle with in the course of their work.
And D.D. puts his money where his mouth is. He donates a portion of his book sales to three nonprofit organizations focusing on the mental health of first responders and nurses.
I absolutely loved my conversation with D.D. He truly is one of the most insightful, compassionate, generous, and funny individuals who I want in my life forever.
