I have been a registered nurse for 28 years. I graduated from Northern Michigan University with a Bachelors degree in nursing. My background has been in many areas of the health care field, including medical/surgical nursing, home health and hospice, public health nursing, long-term care, and adult education.
All nurse aide students participate in our student organization HOSA (Future Health Professionals). Visit the national website www.hosa.org or the state web site www.michiganhosa.org. Our students have competed in regional competitions, at the state level, and have qualified to compete at the national competitions.
I am honored to be able to introduce students to the health care system and the essence of nursing. The health care system is a challenging, ever changing environment. My desire is to teach and support my students in achieving their goals. Along the way, they will embody what it means to make a difference in the lives of others.
I live in Pelkie with my husband, Kevin and our three children. I love animals, the outdoors, reading, and music.
