I knew at age ten I would be a nurse one day. Today, I am a doctorate prepared Nurse Practitioner (NP) trained in adult and geriatric medicine and board certified in geriatrics. I have experience in a variety of settings, including tele-medicine, rehabilitation facilities, nursing homes, hospital psychiatric medicine, assisted living facilities, clinics, and home visits. I love what I do, each and every day!
I am an entrepreneur, healer, patient advocate, and teacher at heart. I have 20 plus years of experience in nursing and medicine. I serve on the Advisory Board for the College of Health and Natural Sciences at the University of Northern Colorado (UNC), teach as adjunct faculty for UNC per diem, and have volunteered on the research committee for GAPNA. My doctorate research focused on the concept of transition and how transitions can be made successfully, whether the transition be organizational, clinical, or personal. I have started several practices, managed NP teams, and developed new business models for delivering care. My dream is to create a new standard and new approach for patients to interact with their doctors, nurse practitioners or physician assistants. This standard is infused with integrity and trust. This approach is committed to personal, convenient and economical care for the patient and to flexible, accommodating, and nonburdensome work for the provider.
I am a wife, married to an amazing man for 15 years, mother of two wonderful daughters, and daughter of loving parents. I am located in Colorado and love the Rocky Mountains, hiking, swimming, writing, baking, traveling and missions.
About On Line Health Visits
After working as an adult and geriatric Nurse Practitioner for 15 years, and as nurse prior for 5 years, I have seen first-hand the devastating affects lifestyle and food choices can have on one’s physical, emotional, and mental health and sense of well-being. These diseases include weight gain, fatigue, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, prediabetes and diabetes, fatty liver disease, polycystic ovarian syndrome, asthma, inflammation, chronic pain and fatigue syndrome, some cancers, and even Alzheimer’s. While current day medical treatment has focused on drugs to mitigate these affects, these drugs do not reverse diseases brought about by lifestyle and food choices. The good news is, there is an answer and it is simpler than you realize!
Today’s healthcare system has grown complex, disjointed and impersonal. Diet, fitness and health industries exploit. Insurance companies control access to medical care. Individuals like yourself are disillusioned and rightfully distrusting of “the system”.
As founder of TeleHealthNP, it is my aim to restore integrity and trust between providers and patients, to offer truthful medical advice and care that heals and restores, to educate and empower self-efficacy, and to provide affordable access to medical care apart from insurance companies.
