The past 14 years of my nursing career have been spent pursuing my passion to serve the community by offering evidence-based education programs focused on health promotion. I believe in collaborative, person-centered learning, with the goal of providing knowledge that empowers the individual to make small, but steady prevention-based behavior change.
