Bio and Professional Experience

After graduating from the University of Missouri Sinclair School of Nursing in 2010, I began my nursing career on the Progressive Care Unit at University Hospital. I quickly transitioned to my area of passion, Emergency Nursing, in 2011. I served as a staff nurse in the Emergency Department until I graduated with my MSN as an Adult-Gerontology Clinical Nurse Specialist. I served as a nurse clinician and Trauma Performance Improvement and Patient Safety Coordinator from July 2014 to December 2015 before transitioning back to the Emergency Department as a staff nurse.
