I’m a dynamic, seasoned and compassionate advanced practice nurse with extensive experience in a variety of practice settings including inpatient and out-patient mental health, crisis, corrections, and academia. My clinical focused is on the biopsychosocial needs of individuals, families and communities so they attain, maintain or recover optimal health and quality of life. I possess a strong work ethic, high level of enthusiasm with exceptional dependability. I’m gifted in establishing and maintaining rapport and meaningful professional relationships across disciplines. The philosophy that guides my clinical practice is based upon a social contract that delineates professional rights and responsibilities as well as mechanisms for public accountability.
