I am a 40ish happily married gal. I am a mother of three lovable boys. I have been in nursing for nearly two decades, and nurse practitioner for the last 11 years. In late 2015, I left the comfortable, familiar world of cardiothoracic surgery and critical care where I spent my career and joined an outpatient adult and geriatric psychiatry practice. I have never looked back in this decision and am now pursuing graduate school once again.
I love fashion, reading, my two cats, wine, Starbucks and bad TV (not necessarily in that order). I also live with postpartum onset bipolar disorder.
I am an advocate.
I dream of a stigma-free world for all with mental illness. A world where we are treated no differently than a diabetic or someone with high cholesterol.
