I am a Clinical Nurse Specialist with a focus on community health, serving underserved populations across Genesee, Ingham, Macomb, Monroe, Oakland, and Wayne counties. My primary work involves supporting patients struggling with homelessness, addiction, and mental health disorders. As a privileged and credentialed CNS, I operate to the full scope of my practice. This encompasses direct patient care, nursing education, and organizational development. I have a passion for providing high-quality, compassionate nursing care to disadvantaged individuals.
