“I decided to pursue my interest in nursing when I was in high school. I’ve always enjoyed helping others. After working in acute care as a registered nurse for 12 years, I decided to become a family nurse practitioner to provide health education and treatment to patients in a community health setting. My advice to patients is to always listen to your body. Your health is your wealth. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my four sons and my husband, reading great books, and traveling.”
