I started my medical career right after graduating from high school by joining the US Army as a combat medic where I served for 7 years. I completed my Associates Degree in Nursing at University of Alaska Anchorage in 2011 and obtained my nursing license in 2012. I completed my Bachelor's Degree in Nursing online through Arizona State University in 2015. I completed my Master's Degree in Nursing at Frontier Nursing University in 2023 with a focus on Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner and became board certified in 2023. I have provided health care in some way or another in a variety of environments. I have a passion for empowering others through education as well as meeting people where they are along their journey through life. It is an honor and privilege to walk alongside others in support and encouragement as they navigate their own paths.
