ABOUT

ME

Passionate About Inspiring Others

I have spent my life time in trying to encourage others.

During my years in the Army, I worked in the Chaplain's Division providing counseling and support to soldiers who were entering military life, facing deployment, and in a Critical Care Medical center for wounded and critically ill military personnel

Returning to Salisbury in 1989, I learned there were not support available for individuals with HIV/AIDS.  I became the first President and Counselor of Eastern Shore AIDS Foundation.  In that capacity I provided one on one and group therapy support for Children, Women and Men who were diagnosed with HIV/AIDS.  Additionally, I provided caregiver and family support for family and friends of HIV/AIDS patients.  


After becoming a nurse, I worked in many critical areas that have greatly influenced my drive and compassion to provide inspiration.  Whether I was in the Emergency Room, or ICU or working as a Hospice Nurse or in Corrections, I felt it crucial to not only provide care that would meet the medical needs of my patients, but also to provide care that would inspire them to move forward in complete wellness.

Now as a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner, I find myself in a role of not just providing medication, but providing Inspiration.  While medical interventions play an important role in the treatment of Psychiatric / Behavioral conditions and Substance Abuse Treatment, I find it vital couple that with fundamental education that would give people the power to understand their condition and become the person they always dreamed of being.
