I began my journey in nursing over 5 years ago in the hospital setting as a cardiac step-down nurse and just recently graduated and became a nurse practitioner. The main reason I chose to become a family nurse practitioner because I thoroughly enjoyed learning about each phase of life and wanted to be able to watch my patients and their families grow. Something I also take pride in is providing my patients with compassionate and high-quality patient centered care.
I was born and raised on the beautiful island of Key West, FL and I’m a loving mom to my rambunctious dog, Beaux. In my spare time, I enjoy crafting, spending time with my family and loved ones, as well as traveling.
