Fun facts/ Passions:
I buy/sell/trade rare and exotic plants, particularly aroids. I once sold a plant for $600…then totally regretted it and wanted it back. I love native gardening and wildlife (Plant native!). I adopted three hummingbirds this year and I am currently in school to become a PMHNP.
What do you like being a Rapid response RN?
I am exposed to something new every shift. I have learned so much from fellow nurses and providers. I am very passionate about being a patient advocate and strive to bring comfort and peace to every patient that I encounter.
