Associates Degree in Nursing Registered Nurse
Hello and welcome to my webpage! I love the field of Health Care and am so excited to have the opportunity to share with you and hopefully inspire you to consider a future career in Health Care! I have lived in Ocala for 19 years and in Florida for most of my life. I graduated from the College of Central Florida with my Associate's Degree in Nursing in 2006. I have worked in many different areas of nursing and I'm looking forward to sharing some of my experiences and stories with you!
I have a daughter named Samantha who teaches first grade, and my son Trey is a Firefighter/Paramedic for Marion County Fire Services. I also have three dogs and a tortoise. Their names are Willie, Frida, Diego, and Tortellini. They are a lot of fun and keep my busy!
In my free time, I like to work in my yard and spend time gardening. I also love to travel and have been fortunate to have seen many beautiful and interesting places.
Here are some fun facts about me:
- I have petted a reindeer in -46 degree weather at North Pole, Alaska (Yes, that's NEGATIVE 46 degrees!).
- I have visited almost every state in the U.S., including Alaska and Hawaii and have been to four countries.
- I made my first apple pie when I was three years old and have been baking ever since. I love trying new recipes and sharing them with my friends.
