How long have you been a member of SPUC?
Since June 2023
Why did you choose the Pediatric Urgent Care field?
I love caring medically for children and live in an area with a desperate need for good providers for children and families. Urgent care offers the opportunity to serve children of all ages, backgrounds and needs.
Please list a few of your most recent accomplishments.
Recently coached 10 U Girls All Stars soccer team for Jackson County, Georgia (I have been a soccer coach for many, many years now), but getting to coach these All Stars was a special event and treat; raising two wonderful children; dog parent to three wonderfully spoiled dogs;
I am considered not only a reliable co-worker but a great asset to my current and last jobs as a PNP.
Why did you join SPUC?
To gain up-to-date acute care information specifically for pediatric urgent care patients and to keep my medical knowledge as up-to-date as possible.
Started nursing career as pediatric ICU nurse for 12 years. After seeing so may preventable incidents I decided to go back to graduate school during the last two years of my pediatric ICU career and earn my nurse practitioner degree to provide care and education to the community in a prehospital setting. I also have a special needs child and helping educate families in that area is of great importance to me in primary care and in urgent care settings. I worked in primary and urgent care for over nine years, recently making the change to full-time urgent care.
