How long have you been a Nurse?
I have been a registered nurse for 16 years serving seniors in all levels of care. I graduated from Clark State Community College with a degree in Applied Science/Registered Nursing.
What experience do you bring to BrightStar Care®?
I am a high-performing R.N. with experience in skilled care as well as in assisted and independent living. I started out as a floor nurse and worked my way up to the Director of Nursing position at a thriving continuing care retirement community, where during my tenure we attained 5 consecutive years of deficiency-free surveys. I played a pivotal role in implementing a dementia care program that is based on the individual needs of the client enabling them to maintain their highest level of functioning and independence. I started an on-site health clinic that brought 10 physicians of various specialities to the facility therefore enabling the client to receive the optimum in health care delivery services.
What aspect of your job are you most passionate about?
I am most passionate about the quality of care that is delivered to our clients day in and day out. They are entrusting us with their health and well being and there is no greater calling in life than caring for those in need.
I am Making More Possible for our BrightStar Care® clients by…
Understanding that every client is an individual with various needs and going above and beyond to assure all of their needs are met. I believe and live by the fact that we do more simply because it is the right thing to do.
