How long have you been in nursing?

I have been a registered nurse for 22 years and a nurse practitioner for 9 years.

How long have you been in nephrology?

I have been practicing in nephrology since 1998.

Why do you love nephrology?

I have a passion for kidney disease prevention, awareness, and education. Nephrology is close to my heart because I have family members affected by kidney disease. I enjoy the long-term relationships that I develop and am able to maintain with my patients who have end-stage renal disease (ESRD). I enjoy the complexity of taking care of people living with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and ESRD because it gives me the perfect opportunity to implement holistic and comprehensive care. But most of all, I love nephrology because I believe it is my calling from God. I am passionate about life, people, service, and love.

What is your favorite ANNA member benefit?

I love being a member and leader of ANNA. ANNA has so many benefits that are geared towards improving the professionalism and personal growth of a nephrology nurse. As a recipient of an ANNA award, my favorite benefits are the career-building opportunities that include awards, scholarships, and grants; and networking and connecting with local chapter members and potential members.

Share an interesting fact about yourself.

When not taking care of my patients and teaching my students, I enjoy spending time with my husband of 18 years and my two sons. Outside of work, my interests include healthy eating, exercising, and world travel. My favorite places I have visited are Thailand, Malaysia, Netherlands. and Jamaica. I hope to visit Africa and Israel in the near future.

Always putting God at the center of my life, my biblical motto is: "Let your light so shine before men, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven" (Matthew 5:14–16).
