Professional Summary

Passionate, caring mom of three with 25 years of experience in the healthcare field. After many years being out of high school and working various jobs in nursing. I went to college and obtained my associates degree in practical nursing, graduating near the top of my program. I then made the decision to not go to work, but to stay home with my children. I'm so glad I made that choice. I have had the pleasure of home schooling them for several years and our family grew too. Now that my youngest is in preschool, I have the overwhelming need to care for others.

Although I have never worked in the office environment, it is calling me to try new things. I am excited to begin a new chapter as a member of your Nursing Staff.
