I began my career in nursing 21 years ago when I graduated from Presbyterian Hospital School of Nursing with my diploma in nursing. I worked 1 year on Telemetry at Iredell Memorial Hospital then moved to the Emergency Room were most of my clinical experience was obtained. I have experience in various areas of patient care including the Cardiovascular Cath Lab and Radiology. In addition to my 21 years of clinical experience and having my certification in Emergency Nursing, I recently obtained my Masters of Nursing-Family Nurse Practitioner degree from Western Carolina University. I am employed by Piedmont Health Care Women’s Center as a Family Nurse Practitioner and will be beginning my practice there providing primary, wellness, and gynecological care.
