I am a graduate of Marquette's Midwifery program in August 2011; and although life took me on an alternate path, I have always continued to help others. During my time off from nursing I found myself vol- unteering in my children's school; in the classroom and library. Due to outstanding circumstances, I also took the opportunity to homeschool my 4 children for a year (grades 8, 3, kindergarten, and pre-k). While work- ing as a nurse for the visiting nurses association, I was given a rare opportunity. I was able to help pioneer the pediatric home health program in the Green Bay area, in conjunction with Children's Hospital of Wiscon- sin; forging strong doctor-nurse relationships where they didn't exist before, and allowing for continuity of care between Children's Hospital, home care, primary care doctor's, and any other medical professionals involved in a patient's care. As a Pediatric Nurse Case Manager, I was given the opportunity to teach my fel- low adult care nurses about the special needs and unique skills regarding pediatric care, along with teaching families and caregivers how to safely care for their special needs child in their home. At my current job, I have been flexible and quickly able to fill the many different needs of our department, switching from triage nursing to primary nurse for maternal-fetal medicine. I have always been able to quickly pick up skills that were needed to get any job done, and I feel this has only aided me in increasing my skill base. With my exceptional organizational skills, adaptation, and advanced degree I provide the unique ability to work within multiple aspects of healthcare.
During my time away from nursing I spent time volunteering at the local elementary school. I spent set hours every week in the library - reorganizing childrens' reading books; reshelving books, repairing books, and assisting in any random needs. I also spent time volunteering in the classroom to include reading, assisting with spelling quizzes, and supervising field trips.
I spent a year homeschooling 4 children ranging from pre-k to 8th grade. Creating curriculum. Implementing study sessions, hands on laboratory experiments, including dissection of small animals, and testing competencies. Curriculum also included field trips and coordinating with other homeschool families in creating new opportunities for children.
