What I can say is that now I cannot imagine working in other professional field. God has given me a passion to love and serve others and fulfilling that through my position with Total Care has been worthwhile. I started my journey in the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit as a RN, then to perisurgical services while I pursued my FNP. Since graduating I have strived to continue to learn something new every day in order to care for patients to the best of my ability. It is my honor to be a part of your medical home team!
