Originally from Northern California, I moved to Central Texas in 2011. I graduated with my ADN in 2008 and began working as an ICU RN. I subsequently completed my BSN in 2010 and returned to graduate school in 2012. I completed my DNP as an Adult-Geriatric Acute Care Nurse Practitioner in December 2014. Presently, I continue to work in the ICU as a critical care NP as part of the Pulmonary/Critical Care and Sleep Medicine Division at Baylor Scott & White in Temple. I work alongside my Husband whom is a physician assistant.
