Statement of philosophy

My philosophy is to be impactful. As a nurse, we have a duty to serve the public, but how we position ourselves to those we provide care for leaves a lasting memory. I strive to provide patient-focused care that is impactful both in terms of how it was performed, but also in how it made the patient feel. I encourage my students and peers to never give less than their best in every encounter. I strive for this in all I do, whether this is at the bedside, or in any of the decisions I make. Thank you.

Platform message

As a board member, I would like to be the voice of those I represent. To bring forth the issues that need to be escalated and debated. I stand strong with my nursing brothers and sisters, as well as the public we serve. I am passionate, dedicated and a strong advocate for those who are underrepresented or misrepresented. I am thankful for the opportunities I’ve been provided and eager to develop new ideas and strategies as well. I will be honest, faithful and dedicated. I am committed to strengthening our profession through policy and education. Thankfully you.
