I received my BSN from Eastern Kentucky University and my MSN from Walden University. My first job as an APRN consisted of working at an Urgent Care Clinic. I have since moved to work at UK HealthCare because I am interested in more patient-centered care and greater opportunities.
Choosing a career is one of the more difficult choices we as adults have to make in life. I chose nursing and the medical profession years ago simply because it would require something intense and compassionate from me that no other profession would. Having the task of providing comfort and care to those in need, making a difference in peoples’ lives and having a positive impact along with allowing me to be a life-long learner are all reasons I chose medicine. Every day I will continue to strive to be the best nurse I can be.
