A little about me

Being an educator prior to entering nursing, I seek to facilitate the patient’s understanding and engagement in their care as we work together as a team to create a care plan and access treatment options.

Why I love my job

I have been a patient who has been ignored, and if I can help a patient gain access and be fully heard, then I have done something wonderful for someone else.
