My interest in the medical field began when I was a child. I chose to pursue nursing after my father suffered a serious car accident ultimately leading to the loss of his leg, and at twelve years old I was responsible for the dressing changes for his wounds. From that point on I made it my mission to help people and to make a difference in other’s lives through caring and devoting my time to achieving my Bachelor of Science in Nursing.
After I achieved my BSN, I worked as a critical care and emergency department nurse at Banner Health for five years as I worked on my Master of Science in Nursing with the focus of Family Nurse Practitioner. I completed my clinical education for my MSN here in Wickenburg and through my experiences with this wonderful team, I was inspired to care for the people of Wickenburg. As a resident of Wittmann, I find it rewarding to be able to care for those in my community and surrounding areas.
I am a Board-Certified Family Nurse Practitioner through the American Nurses Credentialing Center, and here at Community Hospital Clinics I am involved with the Medicare Annual Wellness program and I provide same day visits. As a Family Nurse Practitioner, I care for patients across the lifespan and focus on disease prevention.
Extensive experience in critical and emergency nursing with a special interest in primary care.
