With over ten years experience in the emergency department I have had countless encounters in direct patient care from the aspects of different professional roles. I began my medical career as an E.R. tech while pursing an education in nursing. After nine years in the registered nursing role, I have demonstrated academic achievement to earn a Master's Level of education in the innovative role of the Advanced Practice Registered Nurse profession. My passion has always included providing genuine, empathetic, evidenced based care and educating the healthcare community. As an APRN there is an expectation to be recognized as an excellent teacher and leader who creates a climate of learning and excellence. In this new role, I plan on sharing my learned experiences and growing with your company. Family Nurse Practitioner-Board Certified
