The years I worked as a registered nurse were spent in the acute care rehabilitation setting. Having worked in this specialty, it has been my pleasure to care for numerous patients who were experiencing either acute or chronic pain. My experience as a registered nurse has provided a clear visual as to how much of a negative impact pain can have on a patient’s daily activities and ultimately, their overall quality of life. Bearing witness to both the physiological and psychological effects of pain has led me to a developed interest in caring for patients who are experiencing pain in their daily lives. I believe it is important to empower my patients not only with the broadened knowledge of pain as a disease, but also, the appropriate treatment options available that can provide increased benefit on an individualized level. Choosing interventional pain management as a specialty is particularly rewarding as I am witness to the improvement of functionality in my patients’ lives when pain relief is attainable.
My husband, Craig, and I encourage youth recreational and competition sports, and are blessed to spend our free time with our three children as they participate in a wide array of extra-curricular activities. We support the Orange Park Athletic Association and are actively involved with the children participating in both the cheer and football programs. During “off-season”, we like to spend our weekends in Orlando going to the theme parks or adventuring to the various US National Parks where we like to hike, fish, climb, and camp.
