I have been a nurse since 2006 when I graduated from Dodge City Community College with my Licensed Practical Nurse Diploma. I continued my education at Dodge City Community College and graduated in 2007 with my Associate of Science in Nursing. In 2016, I graduated Magnum Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Fort Hays State University. During my early career, I worked in nursing homes; once I completed my Registered Nurse, I began working on a medical-surgical floor in Texas. Since then, I have worked in several areas, including ENT/allergies, surgery, ophthalmology, orthopedics, urology, internal medicine, family practice, pediatrics, urgent care, family medicine, and OB/GYN. I have also managed a multi-specialty practice that included six different specialty practices and was involved in managing the day to day functions of the clinics, opening new clinics, and onboarding new providers. Currently, I am practicing in an urgent care clinic; working closely with two nurse practitioners and the administrative team to bring high-quality care to the residents of Dodge City, KS.
