Chief Pediatric Nurse
Meet Tasha Sorum
Tasha Sorum was born in Gillette, Wyoming in 1982. Shortly after she moved to Bismarck, North Dakota, where she spent her formative years.
Tasha’s love for people and animals growing up made the decision to become a nurse an easy one. She started to take medical courses even in high school. In 2003, she became a Certified Nursing Assistant and began her medical career. She started working at a local hospital in a transitional unit, taking care of patients from children to elderly adults. She would assist in daily activities, including bathing, dressing, feeding and walking. During this time, she was accepted into the nursing program at University of Mary in Bismarck.
During her four years at the University, her passion for helping people grew even more. She graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in May of 2008, and received her Registered Nursing license in June of 2008. It was a proud day for her.
After graduation she continued to work in the transitional care unit as a charge nurse on the night shift for two years. She remained at the same medical facility for eleven years. In that time she received experience in many different areas, including endocrinology, plastic surgery, internal medicine/nephrology and family medicine.
Tasha left Bismarck with her family in 2014 and moved to Columbia, South Carolina, as her husband Tim, was stationed at Fort Jackson. In Columbia she was employed at an internal medicine clinic that serviced the homeless and under insured in that area. Not just taking care of their medical issues, but also the emotional and mental struggles people go through every day. It was a very rewarding experience.
In 2015 Tasha and her family moved to Fayetteville, North Carolina. She was given the opportunity to work in a US Air Force family practice clinic at Fort Bragg, taking care of active duty airman, helping them to be able to fulfill their missions. She worked with active duty, their dependents and retirees. Being a military wife helps her to see the everyday struggles that military families have. Working in all these different areas of medicine since the beginning of her medical career has made her a stronger and more compassionate nurse and human being.
Tasha and her husband, Tim, have two beautiful children, Caleb and Carson, and two four-legged companions, Cooper and Lady Byrd. She likes to attend sporting events, go on long walks, and family vacations. Her family is her biggest joy in life.
