Experience

I have been a registered nurse for 25 years. I am a Purdue graduate. I started my career in the Intensive Care and Open Heart units at Porter Memorial Hospital. 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 also worked for 8 years as a certified Oncology/Chemotherapy nurse and felt truly blessed to work with such a special group of patients. I was a substitue nurse last year and enjoyed the environment and especially the students. I look forward to my time here at Union Township.
