Throughout my career, I have worked with and have assisted all ages of people, including pregnant moms, infants, teens, adults, and seniors. What motivates me in my nursing work is the desire to help individuals and communities be and stay healthy. I am here to support you and your families to achieve and maintain the best of health and wellbeing.

    ·        Providing you with community resources (often free).

    ·        Accompanying you to medical appointments, if needed.
