Empowering Holistic Healing:
A Nurse's Journey Beyond the Bedside

From Witnessing Gaps to Filling Them - The Turning Point

 After years of working bedside in the healthcare system, a realization dawned on me - the evident lack of a holistic approach to treating mental illness. This epiphany marked a turning point in my career, prompting me to seek more than the confines of my role as a registered nurse. Frustrated by the limitations that came with merely following orders, especially those influenced by healthcare costs and profits, I yearned for a broader impact on patient outcomes. Becoming a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner was a no-brainer.  I knew this would give me the leverage I needed to truly make an impact.

I recognized the profound importance of patients having access to community providers who genuinely care about their journey to recovery, understanding that true support goes beyond the constraints of inpatient care. Working in the Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) role further underscored the ongoing care and support survivors of trauma need throughout their lifespan, solidifying my commitment to a holistic approach to mental health care. Now armed with a diverse set of skills and a passion for comprehensive healing, I am dedicated to making a meaningful difference in the lives of those seeking support and recovery.
