Get to Know Me
Describe some of your professional highlights.
Prior to becoming a nurse practitioner, I was a registered nurse with over ten years of nursing care experience. I have worked in various fields of nursing such as: adult and pediatric emergency, interventional radiology, perioperative nursing, medical-surgical/oncology, behavioral health and home health. In my 10 years of nursing, I received various awards from different facilities such as the Nurse Excellency Award and the Daisy Award
Upon obtaining my advanced degree, I have worked as an emergency room nurse practitioner where I took care of patients with emergent medical conditions such as chest pain, abdominal pain, sepsis, etc. I also had a dual role in which I worked as an APP for the hospitalist group for the observation unit where I bridge the gap between inpatient and outpatient care.
What would you like patients to know about your approach to care?
My approach is to providing care that is respectful of, and responsive to, individual patient preferences, needs and values, and ensuring that patient values guide all clinical decisions. Involving patients in decision-making is one of the many approaches that I use. I, as a practitioner, provide them with evidenced based information in order for the patient to make an informed decision about their care. Through shared decision making, clinicians and patients work together to make optimal health care decisions that align with what matters most to patients.
What inspired you to become a health care provider?
Nursing is a constant field of learning, and I knew that I wanted to pursue a higher level. A career as a nurse practitioner appealed to me because I wanted to care for my patients on a different level and give the whole perspective, already having the experience as a nurse, and to give provider care as well. My favorite part of being a nurse practitioner is the patient interaction and the variety of patients that you see [each] day. Every day is a new challenge, a new expectation, a potential diagnosis or something to learn.
