My nursing practice began after graduating with my Associate’s Degree in Nursing from Lincoln Memorial University in 2019. While pursuing my Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing degree, I gained experience and knowledge by caring for cardiovascular patients on a telemetry unit then graduated in 2020. Through Lincoln Memorial University I continued to advance my education graduating from their Master’s of Science in Nursing Family Nurse Practitioner program in 2021. I am a board-certified nurse practitioner through the American Association of Nurse Practitioners. The following year I spent serving the population of east Tennessee through travel nursing in multiple cardiac step-down intensive care units further building my knowledge and expertise in cardiology. I joined the team at Genesis Heart and Vascular in 2023 where my professional values of dedicated and exceptional patient care immediately meshed within the practice’s atmosphere of healing with compassion, respect, and courtesy.
Originally, I am from a rural town near Kingsport, TN and currently reside in Tazewell, TN. In my free time I enjoy spending time outdoors in my community. My hobbies include hiking, biking, and reading. I aspire to live a faith-oriented lifestyle which is shown by my dedication to church involvement and assisting with youth activities. My heart’s desire is to continue my passion in providing exceptional care to all patients by combining my medical knowledge with my desire to be a positive light to those around me.
