I am a board certified acute care nurse practitioner. I have over ten years experience in cardiology and electrophysiology as a NP. I currently work part time in the hospital setting. As a nurse, I worked in neurology, neurosurgery and intensive care. I believe the human body is an amazingly complex work of art and mechanics. All of the systems of the body need to work together for optimal health. A major strong point of nursing is understanding no body system is separate and being able to look at a patient in totality. I love to teach and see the "ah-ha" moment when those concepts makes sense and can fit into that bigger picture of the human body. I also love when I get to have one of those moments as well. I believe you should never stop learning. If you stop learning, you stop growing. I spend my spare time gardening, cooking, hiking and with my children.
