I am a board certified Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner with nearly 20 years of bedside nursing experience, including 11 years of travel nursing. I began my career as a nursing assistant while attending high school and obtained my Associate Degree in Nursing in 2006. In 2018, I applied to the ADN-MSN program at Frontier Nursing University. As a Registered Nurse, I spent the majority of my time in ICU but often volunteered to help wherever a nurse was needed. My career has enabled me to work with a variety of populations, and I began to see the connection between mental and physical health and the need for a more holistic approach in healthcare. Over the years, I have had my own struggles with mental health, and I understand how difficult it can be to reach out for help when we need it the most. I strive to empathetically listen to those who come to me for help, ensuring that they feel heard, and together, develop a treatment plan that works for that unique individual.
