About Me

I started my nursing journey in 2002 as a Licensed Practical Nurse. Over the years, I continued my education by earning my Associates Degree as a Registered Nurse at Olive Harvey College in Chicago.  I then went on to earn my Bachelor's of Science in Nursing at Governors State University as well as my Master's of Science in Nursing as a Family Nurse Practitioner. I recently completed a Post Master's as a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner at Northern Kentucky University.


My Nurse Practitioner training included Psychiatric and Mental Health, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Family, Pediatrics, Geriatrics and Hospice/End of Life Care. I was precepted by some of the top board-certified physicians at Northwestern Hospital and the University of Chicago Hospital and numerous clinics in underserved communities in Chicago and Texas.


My approach is promoting health and wellness, providing holistic continuous and comprehensive healthcare for individuals and families across all ages, genders, diseases, and body systems,  My philosophy of patient care is to provide the highest level of evidenced-based quality care to my patients, their families, and the communities that I serve. "I am here for you Today, Tomorrow, and the Future"


I am married with four children (3 sons and 1 daughter).  My hobbies include: Zumba, Yoga, and Listening to music (country, gospel, jazz, old school R&B, and Rap).  I love watching and playing football, basketball, softball, baseball, and traveling and spending quality time with my family and friends. 


Fun Fact:  I swam with the sharks and sting rays in Punta Cana Dominican Republic.
