I am a board-certified psychiatric nurse practitioner. I graduated with my associate degree in nursing in 2009. In 2019, I graduated from Ohio University with my bachelor’s degree in nursing. I went on to complete my master’s degree in nursing in January 2021 after working as a psychiatric registered nurse since 2009. Since obtaining my psychiatric nurse practitioner certification, I have been working in community mental health treating patients of all ages. I am passionate about treating patients with compassion while utilizing evidence-based research and safe practices. I enjoy traveling, baking, movies, swimming, DIY home projects and spending time with my granddaughter.
