I was born and raised in New Jersey, where I obtained both my undergraduate and graduate degrees. Early in my career, I started as a public health nurse, providing in-home skilled nursing care to adults in New Jersey. Later, I transitioned to a nurse practitioner role in sunny Phoenix, Arizona, serving patients across the spectrum, from home and community based settings to transitional care and long term care. For the next few years, I served as a provider, moved into a management role, and eventually transitioned into leadership for field-based clinical teams.
As a healthcare provider, I was drawn to Pine Park Health because of the team’s dedication to person-centered care, as well as the commitment to improving the systems that serve senior communities.
