About Me

I'm originally from South Carolina but am license thus far in SC and Iowa. I'm married and  have 7 children (one is my dogological son) a mini schnauzer. I love working in mental health as a psychiatric nurse practitioner and have been doing so since 2001. My favorite part of my work is to know and hear that my clients are doing well mentally as well as physically and spiritually.   



I have been a family nurse practitioner since 1995 and a psychiatric nurse practitioner since 2009. I've worked in family  medicine and psychiatry. I've been working in the psychiatric field since 2001 and is currently  working in psychiatry as well as family medicine.  I enjoy treating the whole being (because the mind and the body works well together, if one suffers the other suffers). My goal is to help ensure that my clients entire body is working at it's highest state of well being.
