I have been an RN since 1986. My experience includes Adult Med-Surg, Adult Medical ICU, step-down, pediatrics, Labor & Delivery/Post Partum, Visiting Nurse (community health), rehabilitation, detox, and school nursing. My undergraduate degree is from Boston University. I have a Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in paralegal studies from Duquesne University, and am currently studying at Slippery Rock University for the Certified School Nurse program. Once I complete that, I will continue on in grad school for a MPH or a dual MPH/MSN (haven't decided yet). My professional goal is to work as a nurse in a school setting and to utilize my public health education to improve the health of students. Currently, I work as a Health Service Nurse in Pittsburgh, PA -- which I love!
I am a mom, grandmom, wife, Conservative, and Constitutionalist. I have 3 grown kids, two grandkids, and several fur-babies. I have very eclectic tastes: I am a true bibliophile, love antiquing, flea markets, concerts, comicons, kick-boxing, playing cards, and spending time with my family.
