I am a licensed practical nurse specializing in staff development and team building. I started my healthcare journey caring for patients as a floor nurse. I learned from all different types of medical professionals during that time and soaked up as much knowledge as I could. I transitioned into management, then to staff development and infection control, and now I have found my home as the Clinical Director here at ECOBGYN.
Please list your Professional Specialties/Passions.
For as long as I can remember, I have always had a passion for caring for and educating others. I began my career as a teacher for young children. I loved everything about helping to mold and create a positive and welcoming environment for my students, but felt I could do more. I decided to pursue nursing, and once I graduated nursing school, I immediately felt like I was where I was supposed to be.
Why do you love what you do?
What I love most about what I do is being able to share my experiences with my team. I am excited to watch the staff reach their own personal goals and it brings me so much joy to see their hard work and determination grow and flourish. Our team is highly skilled, dedicated and compassionate. They are the foundation for this very special practice. I am fortunate to have the opportunity to merge my love of nursing and teaching into one. My role allows me to empower the clinical team and provide them with all of the tools and support needed to provide the highest quality of care for our patients
Why did you choose Essex County OB/GYN?
I chose ECOBGYN because I instantly felt a connection to the team. Their overwhelming compassion and high standards of care for women’s health was evident from everyone I spoke to. I am blessed to work with such amazing people! I am proud to be part of the ECOBGYN family!
Outside of work, you'll find me...
Outside of work, you will find me hanging out with my family and friends. I love to cook, bake and host theme nights and Sunday dinners.
