At work, I am an RN with over 16 years of healthcare experience. My career spans many settings, including acute, critical, intrapartum, clinical and long-term care. Through my varied experience, I cultivated expertise in etiologies of all body systems.
At home, I am a wife, mom of 3 teens, auntie, and BFF. I am compulsively curious, instinctively creative, and purposely joyful. I love music, reading, writing, traveling, nesting, and play roller derby as Code Bruise #28.
As a healthcare writer, I take an idea and run with it but my creativity is always grounded in evidence. I thrive when challenged. As a reader and writer, I love language that is succinct yet compelling. I can make scientific and technical content simple and readable.
My healthcare writing story began in 2015. As a staff nurse wanting to increase my involvement, I joined the Nursing Practice Committee. I was assigned to do an annual review of nursing policies and was completely intimidated. I dove into researching and updating policies. I discovered a gratifying path to expanding my knowledge and influencing nursing practice. And I was good at it. Over the next few years, I moved on to conceiving and writing new nurse-led protocols, policies, and workflows.
Cheers to 2019, the year I become an entrepreneur. I am thrilled to launch and grow Heart Beat Healthcare Content! This is the space where science and creativity finally meld!
