I was born and raised here in the Twin Cities area. I graduated from Niceville Sr. High School in 1983. I was in the second class of nurses to graduate from O.W.C.C. (now Northwest Florida State). I received my Bachelor’s in nursing from University of West Florida and my Master’s in nursing education from University of Phoenix graduating with honors, Sigma Theta Tau. I am an avid You-Tuber and enjoy paper crafting, junk journaling, making jewelry, and traveling to Disneyworld when I can. Most of all I love being a nurse and caring for my family. I asked God one day what He wanted me to do with my life and His answer was to be a nurse.
