Professional Summary

Dedicated Licensed Practical Nurse with experience in skilled nursing, management in assisted living and memory care, and pediatric, adult, and geriatric home health. Hired to be a charge nurse at a new assisted living facility before the first resident moved in, then promoted to memory care unit manager and ultimately Wellness Director of the facility. Cared for medically fragile children and adults in their homes that required extensive care. Also cared for adult and geriatric patients in home settings that required care and patient teaching after surgery and illnesses. Upon taking time to recovery from my surgery after being injured on the job, my husband had some health issues. Ultimately we went to Rochester, Minnesota to the Mayo Clinic for two months where he endured multiple surgeries and now has recovered enough for me to be able to go back to work.
