I am currently pursuing my MSN/FNP at Monmouth University. I completed the Emory University WOCN program and have practiced as a certified WOCN specialist since 2015. I care for patients throughout the pre- and post-operative processes in both the acute and outpatient settings. My previous nursing experiences with med-surg and hospice patients have shown me how important quality of life is to well-being at any stage of life’s spectrum. Being able to guide my patients towards competency and independence in self-care is an important part of my practice.
