Kaiser Permanente medical center practitioner
Idioma que hablo:
Sí, acepto pacientes nuevos. Es posible que sea necesaria una remisión.
I feel that becoming a family nurse practitioner was truly my life's calling. Compassion, commitment, integrity and caring are words that I live by. In middle and high school, I volunteered at a local shelter and nursing home, but it was a summer internship at a local hospital in my hometown in South Carolina that solidified my decision to pursue nursing.
In pursuit of my dream, I completed my bachelor's degree in nursing at Clemson University. My nursing career began at a local hospital, where I worked in cardiovascular surgery and medical/surgical ICU. I later completed my master's degree in nursing (also from Clemson University), and began working at a federally qualified community health care center, as well as teaching nursing students at Greenville Technical College. I later received my doctorate of nursing practice from the Medical University of South Carolina. I then began teaching at the Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing at Emory University, where I still serve as adjunct faculty. I started working with Kaiser Permanente in 2018.
As a doctorate-prepared, nationally board-certified family nurse practitioner, I get to live out a lifelong dream of helping people every day through my work with Kaiser Permanente's Ambulatory Medicine Department. As a member of this team, I aid in the delivery of excellent, integrated health care to our members and assist with achieving Kaiser Permanente's strategic goals of providing safe, timely, effective, efficient, equitable, person-centered care. Our team provides comprehensive, coordinated, high-quality medical care, which includes preventive medicine, chronic disease management and same-day/episodic visits through our express care services.
Living a well-balanced life is very important to me. How I thrive is through my faith, family and friends. I enjoy singing at my church and dancing with my Chicago Steppers group. I also enjoy traveling, indulging in fine cuisine and cooking new and interesting dishes. My specialty is Southern, seafood and pasta dishes. I am an active member of several professional organizations including the American Nurses Association, Sigma Theta Tau National Honor Society of Nursing, United Advanced Practice Registered Nurses Association of Cobb County and Chi Eta Phi Sorority, Inc. Through my church and nursing organizations, I have served in local and international medical missionary work, including health fairs at local churches and schools, outreach to homeless communities and medical mission trips in Ghana. I enjoy walks in the park with my loved ones, as well as taking spin and kick-boxing classes.
