About Me

I have been a nurse for 40 years working in community health, labor and delivery, school nursing, discharge planning, nursing research and teaching.  I have been a nurse practitioner for 20 years.  I am currently working in a Federally Qualified Health Center with dual diagnosis patients.   


I received my BA in Health Science from SFSU before I went into nursing at UCSF.  I then received my MS at UCSF in Nursing Administration.  I later went for my FNP certificate at SFSU and my School Nurse Credential at CSU Sac.  I obtained my DNP from Samuel Merritt University in the inaugural class.
