I have worked in many areas in my career,  but I have always practiced critical care. I continue to practice in an ICU per diem. I have worked in neurosurgery for 8 years, I administered conscious sedation in an interventional radiology unit for four years, I am certified to insert PICC lines and did so for 2 years. I am an instructor for the American Heart Association teaching BLS and ACLS.

I am currently in the doctoral program at Duquesne University and I am working on delirium recognition. I love music and I also like to waterski, snowski, walk and dance.
