Summary

I have been a practicing Registered Nurse for 30 years. Of which, I have spent 28 in the Emergency Department setting. I started my nursing career as a Med-Surg Nurse, where I was previously a nursing assistant in a small county hospital in Davie County. After a few years (1995), I added Davis Community Hospital to my job list. Then, in 1996, I began at Iredell Memorial Hospital. I continue to work at Iredell Memorial Hospital, going on 26 years as Per Diem basis as of October 2022. I also work Per Diem at Wake Forest Baptist Health - Daive Campus going on 6 years. As of October, 2023 I worked full time for Aya Healthcare Travel Agency, and worked at Novant Health Mint Hill Medical Center. Currently, I work an internal travel position at Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist Davie Medical Center.

I have seen nursing evolve and grow in many ways over the years; but I feel like one thing has remained the same, my attitude. I feel like it's a privilege to be a nurse and my patients deserve to be treated like I would want a member of my family treated.

As a seasoned practicing nurse, I feel competent in my performance of patient care in high-volume emergency room environments. I currently perform in staff and charge nurse roles; setting the standard consistent with the hospital's mission and nursing philosophy. I maintain a high level of accountability professionally and clinically. Not only am I an exemplary patient care advocate but demonstrate above standard patient care.

I feel like I am resourceful along with accustomed to treating diverse patients while managing dynamic conditions. I offer excellent clinical knowledge and judgment combined with strong documentation and problem solving skills. I am well-versed in managing emergent cases with grace and efficiency.
