Uriah began his nursing career as a critical care nurse in 2003 after graduating from Broward Community College. He later obtained his Bachelor of Science degree in nursing from the University of South Florida.

Driven to become a competent Advanced Practice Nurse Practitioner in Psychiatry and Mental Health, he recently transferred to an inpatient psychiatric crisis unit while pursuing his advanced practice degree in the field.

One of his many favorite scriptures is Romans 8: 31-32, "What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things." He has a deep love for people and a passion to share the truths of God's word.
