Why I chose to pursue a career in healthcare:
Since I was a young girl, I always had a fascination with the human body and what made it function. The medical field gave me the opportunity to positively impact my patients, their families and my communties health by providing education, supporting changes in order to obtain positive outcomes which improve their quality of life.
What I want my patients to know about me:
I have lived locally most of my life. I am a dedicated and compassionate nurse for the past 28 years. I started my career as a Licensed Practical nurse- graduated from the Franklin County Practical Nursing Program. Went on to pursue my Registered Nurse via Chambersburg Hosptial program through Excelsior College. To pursue my desire to become an Educator I obtained my Master Degree in Nursing Education at Wilson College and subsequently obtained my Certified Nurse Practictioner in Family Medicine-AANP certified from Widener University.
I choose Cardiology as my path due to signficant family history of Cardiovascular disease.
I have worked with Wellspan for the past 13 years as a bedside nurse on Cardiology unit and with Electrophysiology since 2019.
My mission is to provide my patients and community with educational tools to positively impact their health and improve their quality of life.
What I do when I'm not seeing patients:
I love to travel with my husband and son. We are gym enthusiasts, avid runners and healthcare advocates.
I love to relax by listening to music of all genres , crochet, spend time with family and friends and cuddle my 120-pound lap dog.
