Tell me a little bit about yourself.

My mother was a nurse and influenced my career in nursing. I started my nursing career in Pediatrics then transitioned to a Trauma Level 1 Emergency Department. The Emergency Department was a place of constant learning and sparked my path to Nurse Practitioner school. I am now a mother to my sweet baby girl Emma and married to the love of my life, Mitch. We have a small dog, Bentley. We enjoy traveling to warm destinations!
