I have been practicing as a nurse and PNP for over 25 years. During my career, I have held many different roles. I have worked as a nursing educator at Maricopa Community College helping to train the next generation of nurses. I worked as a Critical Care Flight Nurse part-time. I also volunteered full time as a PNP at the Crisis Nursery, assessing and treating children who need temporary assistance during times of trouble. Other duties have included Chief Medical Officer for Transport, Continuous Quality Improvement Member, Safety Officer, Flight Nurse Educator and Regional Supervisor.
I am married and my husband is a retired firefighter for the city of Mesa, AZ. I have 2 children and 3 step children, all grown. I enjoy riding my bike and my husband and I visit San Diego when we can to enjoy the weather and water from our sail boat!
