Favorite thing about JagNation?

The opportunity to meet so many new people in the setting of a teaching hospital, and the girls I get to work with on a daily basis.


I have a 13-year-old daughter that is my mini me.


Anyone that knows me knows my love for watching the Dawgs play football.

Something the JagNation does not know about you?

I am a very crafty person. I love to make wreaths and plan parties.

How has COVID-19 changed/affected your job? 

Being one of the nurses that swab the kids going to the OR for a procedure on a daily basis keeps you busy and on your toes.
