Professional Summary

I have been a home health care nurse case manager since 2006. I am a nurse preceptor, educator, and mentor for new nurses in the home health company. What makes me a good nurse preceptor, educator and mentor I love working in home health I love getting new nurses excited about helping the aging populations stay in their own homes by giving them the tools to manage the many disease processes that make the patients more independent. It is very rewarding when a CHF patient with multiple hospital stays in one year and teaching the patient how to take their diuretics, the importance of weighing daily, restricting the amount of sodium that is ingested daily, and elevating lower extremity and you are able to keep patient from returning to hospital there is nothing like it you are on cloud 9 you know you made a difference in that patients life. I am most passionate about healing wounds. I took the WTA course in February 2014, I am experienced in wound care and have been the wound care resource person at Florida Home Care Specialist. I am dedicated to providing patients with instructions on how to improve wound healing like promoting good nutrition keeping wounds clean reporting s/s of infection. The case that I am most proud of is healing a wounds on a paraplegic, diabetic, bedbound patient with multiple stage 3 and stage 4 pressure ulcers, the patients wounds made slow steady progress and closed within a year. This patient had not been wound free in 4 years. In conclusion I am a caring, dedicated, passionate, and knowledgeable nurse.
