WHAT EXPERIENCE DO YOU BRING TO BRIGHTSTAR CARE?
I began my nursing career as an intensive care nurse in a large medical center. I was blessed to have been able to work in all divisions and units. After six year and becoming a mother I decided that twelve hour shifts were not the answer and transitioned into home care. I was a field nurse, then a case manager and community liaison. This has allowed me become an advocate and assist patients and their families obtain the resources needed to remain safe, comfortable within their home and community.
