    Background Information

    Immediately upon graduation, I started working in a Medical Surgical/Neuro Intensive Care Unit at Community General Osteopathic Hospital. After being a bedside nurse for 3 years, I transitioned into a management position as Clinical Manager of the Medical Surgical/Cardiac Intensive Care Unit. I was blessed with the wonderful opportunity of being a part of opening the new West Shore Hospital of Pinnacle Health. After doing management for approximately 2 years, I transitioned into a Nurse Navigator role working closely with Pinnaclehealth’s Cardiology team and physicians. After two years of working with Cardiology, I got married and we moved to Port Royal, PA. I was grateful to find the open position at Newport. As a Buffalo alumni, I was proud to give back to my alma mater. This position also best suited my growing family. I miss ICU nursing, but I love seeing the students and am thankful to be a part of their educational experience by helping to promote health and success at school. Next year I will go back to school to earn my School Nurse Certification.
