I am also a Nurse Practitioner
Healthcare has been my career of choice. I started as a Registered Nurse (BSN Oregon Health Sciences University) and completed advanced education to practice as a Nurse Practitioner (MN University of Washington, Seattle). I’m licensed in WA State & Missouri.
Over the years I’ve worked in a number of different areas, including primary care, geriatrics, and intensive care. Eventually, though, I specialized in chronic pain.
While in my chronic pain practice, I helped patients fine-tune and manage their pain medications, focus on mindfulness, nutrition, and movement. As a team, we explored complementary strategies to address ongoing pain.
Today as an NP, I speak, write, and lead workshops on professional development around the country. Additionally, I’m honored to serve as a coach in the Duke University – Johnson & Johnson leadership program.
