Registered Nurse


Cystic Fibrosis


Hesston College, The University of Phoenix, Loyola University New Orleans


The thing that I enjoy the most about nursing is having the ability to enrich people's lives through education. I truly believe that knowledge is power, and I work hard to empower my patients to take control of their health care.
