I've been a registered nurse since 2012. I began my nursing career at Forrest City Medical Center as a floor nurse. Since then, I've had the honor of serving patients as a medical-surgical nurse, critical care, head nurse, a director, an infection preventionist and now an educator.  I've been married for seven years, and have four beautiful children.  I'm an active member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc. and consider public service a personal duty. I enjoy comedy shows, traveling, and spending quality time with my family.
