She then received a bachelor of science in nursing from University of Phoenix. Currently, she is enrolled in coursework toward a Master of Science in Nursing at Loyola University in 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.
