I am a psychiatric clinical nurse specialist, and I’ve worked with children and adolescents since 1999. My entire career has been in psychiatry and mental health. Empathy and listening are essential when I’m trying to understand the needs of my patients and families. I accept patients wherever they are in their health journey.
While earning my Bachelor of Science degree in nursing from Xavier University, my psychiatric nursing rotation and community health rotation inspired me. That’s when I decided to make these my specialty and work with children and adolescents.
In my free time, I like to cook, garden, and spend time with my family and friends. I also love animals, especially dogs.
