Starting out as a little girl, I always knew I wanted to become a registered nurse. My family played a major part in my influence to become a nurse, as many of them are nurses. At the age of 19, I went on to pursue my nursing degree from Alcorn State University (ASU). After graduating Summa Cum Laude from ASU, I matriculated to Western Governors University (WGU) where I received my Master’s of Nursing degree with specialty in Education. My education at WGU enhanced my strong work ethic and drive for excellence.
I have always been an over-achiever, attempting and succeeding to go above and beyond my call of duty. I have worked as a registered nurse close to 10 years and have worked in acute care nursing with a specialty in Obstetrics for almost 9 years. I have always shown much passion for my specialty and after 5 years of working in labor and delivery, I felt the need to take my experience on the road and pursue a career as a travel nurse. Over the last four years, I have traveled from coast to coast, state to state, and city to city and have loved every minute.
Throughout the years, I have seen the dynamics of the nursing practice change and have been on both ends of the spectrum seeing new life brought into the world and also unfortunate events such as death. My experiences with these unfortunate events, that could have possibly been avoided is what lead me to embarking on my journey to become a Certified Legal Nurse Consultant (CLNC). My new found interest in this genre is my way of bridging the gap between nursing, medicine, and law.
