When did you start working in transplantation?


Why do you work with transplant patients?

I enjoy the holistic approach to transplant coordination. We deal with all aspects of the patients care; medical, psycho-social. It is a long-term partnership, where you get to know the fine details of your patients and as a nurse you impact their care and outcomes significantly, which is very rewarding.

What is your education?

I have an Associate of Science degree from Cecil College and am pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Nursing at Villanova University. 

What else do you want people to know about you?

I am a member of the International Transplant Nurses Society – Local Baltimore Chapter, as well as the American Association of Critical Care Nurses.
