Experience

I am proud to say I have a nurse for 25 years.  I graduated from Purdue with my nursing degree in 1990.  I started my career in the Intensive Care and Open Heart units at Porter Memorial Hospital and loved it.  I transitioned to Emergency Medicine and became an E.M.T. to further my education.  I had a number of certifications to care for adult and pediatric trauma patients including Advanced Cardiac Life Support. I decided to change the direction of my career when my father was diagnosed with lung cancer and became a hospice nurse.  It was a very fulfilling and life changing experience.  I worked for 8 years as a certified Oncology/Chemotherapy nurse and felt truly blessed to work with such a special group of patients.  When the Oncologist retired, I worked as a nursing manager but missed direct patient care.  I was a Substitute School Nurse in several school districts and fell in love with the students and the nature of the work.  And here I am!  



Bio

I am a Crown Point native.  My family was one of the first to reside in Lakes of the Four Seasons.  It was a wonderful place to grow up, and I currently reside there with my husband. My husband is a Mortgage Loan Officer.  I graduated from Crown Point High School, Class of '78, where my Mother was one of the very few Latin teachers in the state.  I have 2 children that live in Indiana. My husband has 2 children and we have 3 grandchildren that live in a tiny town in Alaska.  We try to visit every summer, and I love it there!  My Mother lives in Roatan, Honduras every winter and does Missionary work. I try and visit her there when I can, and it is another wonderful place to visit.  I enjoy the outdoors, reading, spending time with my family, love my pets (dog, cat, and bearded dragon lizard), traveling, and riding with my husband on our Honda Goldwing.  I am so excited to be part of Union Township and look forward to getting to know the students and staff.  I look forward to my future here.
