    Learn more about Advanced Practice Nurses.

I wanted to be an Advanced Practice Nurse since age 12, but my interest in the human body and science began even earlier. I love the comprehensive approach of nursing coupled with the extended scope of practice that being an APN provides. I believe that patients and their families are partners in their care. I strive to provide quality care based on a holistic approach, combined with clinical experience, personal observation, and intuition.
