On September 11, 2007 I graduated with an Associate of Science Degree in Nursing. I then later received my Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) in December 2016. I began my nursing career as a pediatric and pediatric intensive care nurse at Plantation General Hospital 2007-2010. I was employed by Baptist Health South Florida May 2010-October 2020, where I gained experience in both adult and pediatric urgent care nursing. Since October 2020 I have been a nurse for the Palm Beach Health District. My greatest strength is my dedication to making a difference in my patient's lives. I am interested in learning all that it takes to achieve the knowledge and skills required for excellent patient care. I have never taken for granted my ability to work well in a team environment. I am convinced that my dedication to nursing will assist me in reaching my goals as well as making a positive impact at your facility.

Circle of Excellence Nursing Representative
I believe that nursing is a profession that utilizes the human emotions of caring and compassion and merges them with learned skills and knowledge. By combining these we move towards improving the quality of life in our patients and their families. Nursing is a selfless state of being. It is a way of giving without expecting anything in return. Nursing is knowing that you have made a difference in one single person's life and therefore have affected the future.
A person is an integral part of this world. Life should be cherished and nurtured for we don't know how that insignificant life can affect the course of the world in a significant way. It is a nurse's duty to treat each person as a significant and important part of the world. As nurses we must have confidence in all that we do for the benefit of our patients. Nurses must continuously improve and grow to learn new ways of bringing a healthy state of being to all they encounter.
Health is a state of mind and being. A person may need nurturing of one or both the body or mind. Nurses must aid in both for when one is suffering the other is soon to follow. Pain in the body causes pain in the mind. Nursing uses skills and education to aid in the recovery of the physical body. Caring and compassion are crucial for caring for the mind. It is in that special environment that nursing has its chance to shine.
Environment is key in recovery for any ailment. It is in a caring and nurturing environment that strides are made towards promoting and improving a person's life. Nurses are important to the environment which is critical for healing. It is their knowledge, skills, advocacy, confidence, caring, compassion, and patience that make it possible for a complete healing process to take place. A positive environment is crucial for a positive state of mind and being.
