Professional Summary

Highly trained Registered Nurse with strong clinical abilities in care of psychiatric and substance abuse patients.  Have had a successful career in both inpatient and outpatient facilities.  Proactive and organized with passionate commitment to first-rate patient care. Licensed in Kentucky currently and have been licensed in other states while working with travel agencies and have provided excellent care for these type patients for over 20 years.. Have an innate ability to work with them, assist them and teach them while treating them with respect. 

Although my expertise is in caring for psychiatric and substance abuse patients, many of them have co-existing medical problems that have to be treated as well.  To educate is a primary part of treatment to help patients become more aware of how to care for themselves.
