Growing up, Ms. Schloemer's older sister struggled with cancer. During her lengthy stay in the hospital, she was treated by some amazing nurses who left a lasting impression on Ms. Schloemer. Just 8 years old at the time, her passion for the field only grew as time went on. She became a registered nurse through White Plains Hospital in New York in 1954. She later earned a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the State University of New York at Albany in 1981 and a Master of Science from Long Island University in 1985.

A geologist before entering the military, Mr. Schloemer's career led them to the Sierra Mountains of Mexico, where they spent two years. A wonderful, yet challenging experience, there were no doctors nearby and food had to be delivered by airplane. Spending most of her time teaching and caring for people with various types of wounds and broken bones, it was an invaluable experience for Ms. Schloemer. The conditions were primitive. Her two children were with them Jimmy, age 4, and Susan, age 6 months. Three years later, Carla was born.
