Biography

I have worked in medical/surgical nursing, telemetry, intensive care/critical care, post-anesthesia care unit, same day surgery unit, conscious sedation for radiology and endoscopy, scrubbed an circulated for minor treatment room, and chemotherapy. I have been in nursing management since October 2002. I have managed medical/surgical units, telemetry, oncology, post-anesthesia care unit, same day surgery, endoscopy, and pre-admission testing, acute rehabilitation nursing. I was fortunate enough to open a 30-bed orthopedic hospital, and managed inpatient nursing, physical therapy, occupational therapy, social services, case management; taught pre-hospital classes for patients including diabetic education, oversaw patient experience along with quality measures for outcomes with orthopedic surgeries. I am currently the Director of Nursing at a residential facility for substance use disorders and mental health, including detox. I love to teach, so adjunct faculty is a position I thoroughly enjoy. I have four grandchildren, two dogs, a cat, and a guinea pig along with a fish aquarium. I love to travel to San Jose Del Cabo yearly and enjoy cruising.
