"After graduating with my BSN in 2003, I began working in a cardiac stepdown unit as a new grad. I quickly learned the value of critical thinking and utilizing my resources as I navigated patients with a multitude of cardiac issues. I am forever grateful for the experienced nurses that mentored me throughout my first year and eased my fears. I then transitioned to the mother/baby world where I developed an entirely new skillset. It was there that I began delving into precepting students and new staff members so that I could share my knowledge, build up their confidence and return the kindness I had experienced years before. I spent the next 12 years mentoring staff and students alike, on both day and night shifts, in a bedside nursing role as well as a charge RN. I believe those experiences positively impact not only the student, but the preceptor/mentor as well. Since 2017, I have been working as a lactation consultant and thoroughly enjoy the time I get to spend educating new parents and collaborating with them to achieve their goals. Working in both an inpatient and outpatient setting has given me the opportunity to be able to see them through their hurdles to success and that is truly rewarding.

If I wasn't a nurse, I'd probably be a teacher! I thoroughly enjoy working with children of all ages. Their curious minds constantly working to figure out a problem. I have volunteered in our own children's classrooms at their elementary school for several years working with children of all skill levels in reading, writing and math.

I've worked as a Registered Nurse for nearly 17 years in a variety of settings. I began precepting students and new staff members in 2005 so that I could share the knowledge I had gained and have the opportunity to build others up. Throughout the years, I've experienced night shift, day shift, bedside nursing as well as leadership positions such as charge nurse in addition to maintaining my role as a preceptor.
