I have been a Registered Nurse for 28 years. I have worked exclusively with the pediatric patient population my entire career and have loved every minute of it. My background includes General Peds/Adolescents, PICU, Peds Surgery/PACU, Peds Hem-Onc/BMT, Quality Improvement, and Nursing Supervision.

I am a single mother to an amazing 24-year-old daughter, Shea, who did not follow in my footsteps to become a nurse, however I forgive her for that as she followed her heart to work in broadcast journalism, and we both share a love of writing. While Shea is “living the dream” in NYC, I am an empty-nester and have two beautiful rescue dogs, a 4-year-old golden retriever, Riley and an 11-year-old collie, Steffi; they are excellent company and are always happy to see me.
