My academic performance has been always good. I am able to work hard, I love new challenges, as much as I enjoy working with people and know to deal with any conflicts that may arise. I am also eager to learn new things. I can work well with team or independently. I worked as a Resource Registered Nurse on Oncology and Bone Marrow Transplant Unit in a hospital for 14+ years, and strived to promote teamwork by being a positive influence and role model for all co-workers. I currently work as Hepatology Nurse Practitioner to assist with their care and navigate liver transplant. My experience and education have provided me with excellent knowledge of patient assessment and treatment including medical oncology related practices, acute patient care and patient-family relations. This, coupled with my attention to details, organizational and communication skills allows me to make a substantial contribution to Avera McKennan Hospital.

I believe that a challenging environment such as working in a fast pace Hepatology clinic provides an excellent experience for me to best utilize my skills while contributing to the healthcare community, patients and their families. I firmly believe that I have the intellect, skills and talents necessary to succeed in management of a variety of complex and unpredictable problems that are associated with the assessment, treatment and management of Hepatology patients and coordination of care and appropriate services needed for patients and families.
