Upon finishing nursing school, I began my nursing career as a nurse in the surgical ICU at UIHC caring primarily for neurosurgical patients. This is where my passion for neuro grew and my dreams of becoming a neurosurgical nurse practitioner started.

I have always been interested in caring for others. I was born the youngest grandchild and had two cousins that have Spina Bifida and required many surgeries and close neurosurgical care at UIHC.  In high school, I helped take care of my grandmother who was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer and that is when I knew I wanted to be a nurse. Upon finishing nursing school, I began my nursing career as a nurse in the surgical ICU at UIHC caring primarily for neurosurgical patients. This is where my passion for neuro grew and my dreams of becoming a neurosurgical nurse practitioner started. I treat all of my patients with dignity and provide holistic care. I enjoy collaborating with other providers to ensure optimal care for each one of my patients.
