About Me

I've been in the nursing field with Kaiser Foundation Hospitals since 1993.  In the earlier part of my nursing career, I worked per diem and worked most of the bay area Kaiser and Sutter hospitals.  I also owned a small business with my husband in Burlingame, CA from the early 90's to 2005; and supported the family restaurant business in Foster City until 2001. My leisure times are for travel and being a foodie.  I enjoy social gatherings and learning new cultures.
