WHY I CHOSE PAIN MANAGEMENT

As a registered nurse of eight years, I have worked in many different types of healthcare settings, but the topic of pain has always been a common issue.  Whether it’s acute or chronic, the concern has always been a very sensitive and important aspect that affects a patient holistically. Becoming a Nurse Practitioner has not only allowed me to become more involved in a patient’s plan of care but has also allowed me the opportunity to give back to the community. Becoming a member of Jax Spine and Pain has given me more insight into the world of pain and all the innovative treatments that we can offer our patients.  I am happy to be a part of a team that helps patients live a more productive and enjoyable life.

PERSONAL INTERESTS AND COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT

In my free time, my fiancé and I like to spend as much time outdoors as we can. Coming from Illinois, where only two out of the twelve months are warm, I have learned to appreciate and enjoy every beautiful day here in Florida. I enjoy traveling, hiking, and spending time with friends and family. I also enjoy going to concerts, amusement parks, and community events.
