Summary

I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Nursing from the University of Nevada at Las Vegas in 2003 and shortly thereafter I started working in a community Hospital Emergency Room. I was one of the first nurses to transition straight from school to an emergency room. Working in trauma and Emergency had always been my passion. I have a 16-year experience in Emergency/ Trauma Nursing

I completed a Master’s Degree in Nursing in the Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) tract, from the University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston in August 2018

I worked for several years as a Travel Emergency Room Nurse, traveling across the western United States, working and learning new skills from the various settings. With my master’s preparation from one of the top 10 programs in the country I am ready to start a long career as a Healthcare Provider while continuing my education. I am a very quick learner, a team, compassionate and open to new ideas. Patient safety is at the core of my nursing career.

I operate effectively in fast-paced emergency settings to address concerns with acute and chronic conditions. I have good communication, decision-making and prioritization skills useful for assessing patients and arriving at a sound clinical decision. Utilize evidence-based guidelines to provide the best care for my patients.
