I was born in Mineola, New York and moved to Suffolk County, Long Island, N.Y. when I was 3 years old and lived there up until 2009 when I moved to Henderson, Nevada. I went to nursing school in New York and graduated from an ADN program with my AAS with my major in nursing in 2003. I have been a practicing registered nurse since that time in various specialties. I went back to school in NY and graduated from St. Joseph’s College with my BSN in 2009. I continued my education when I moved to Nevada and graduated from UNLV in 2015 with my MSN / Education My goal is to continue my education and be a lifelong learner.
MY PASSION FOR NURSING
My passion for nursing is to find the specialty that grabs your heart. Nursing is so diverse and has been such an amazing career for me and sometimes I think to myself “I can’t believe I have this privilege to care for people and touch so many hearts, but the ironic part is that they touch my heart more with the simple things”. I love bedside nursing, but I wanted to work with students and help them love nursing as much as I do and provide the foundation to nursing so they can keep building. The most exciting part for me these past few years has been seeing the students grow and blossom into these amazing future nurses who will be caring for us someday. I look forward to working with all of you in practice.
