Graduating from our accelerated RN program here at PA College 17 years ago, I bring many years of clinical nursing practice, as well as 3+ years experience as a Certified Family Nurse Practitioner, to the Health campus. Additionally, I hold a Bachelor degree in Social Work, which serves as the foundation of my career working in mental health prior to becoming an RN. Along with providing many years of inpatient care to trauma & mental health patients across the lifespan, my clinical expertise includes working as an integrative pain specialist in medical specialties such as chronic pain management, neurology & neurosurgery. In my free time, I enjoy growing vegetables in my garden, cooking with fresh, local ingredients, reading, exercising & going on adventures with my husband, our 3 children & our 2 fur babies.
