In 2010, I moved to South Florida from my home state of Alabama.  I decided to make this big move because I thought it would be a good idea to move somewhere new and exciting.  At first, I was extremely nervous, especially since I would move away from all of my family and friends.  However, it was not long before I fell in love with South Florida.  Currently, I reside in the Fort Lauderdale area. I have one dog "Maggie" and three cats "Fancy, Mister and Bru".

Soon after the move to Hollywood, I began working at Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital.  I worked there for two years while finishing my Master's at the University of Alabama at Birmingham.  I completed practicum hours at Personal Care Pediatrics with Dr. Francine Magaletti and Penny Buccholz, ARNP in 2013.   I also completed hours at Pediatric Associates.  After completing my Master's degree, I practiced at Children's Medical Center for almost two years.  

I have been a Pediatric nurse for nine and a half years.   It was practically sheer luck that I began working with children.  After nursing school, I was not sure which area of nursing to begin.  I applied for two jobs and was immediately offered a Registered Nurse position on a pediatric floor.  I did not hesitate and took the job!  Now, I cannot imagine practicing in any other specialty. 

Some days are challenging, but every day is rewarding.  I love the feeling of making children and their families feel comfortable while providing them with the best quality care.

In my spare time, I enjoy working out, bicycling, travelling and going to the beach.  I am also a huge Alabama Crimson Tide fan.
