I am a PMNHP at Mental Health Partners of Colorado. I am fortunate to live and work in my community. I am also a neonatal nurse practitioner and I worked in that role for 20 years at Children's Hospital Colorado. I am a graduate of Regis University for both my NNP and PMHNP.I have a doctor of education from Creighton University. I began my career as a Navy nurse many years ago and I worked in med-surg and labor & delivery. I have an interest in workforce issues, full practice authority, and leadership.
