About Me

IMG_5061_Facetune_14-06-2019-09-43-05.jp

I graduated from the University of California at Berkeley as an Integrative Biology major and Conservation Resource Studies minor. I enhanced my understanding of the relationship between the human body and the physical environment as a labor support doula, a postpartum doula, and a midwife assistant. I continued my education, went to DePaul University, and obtained an MS in Nursing. Nursing school afforded me the perfect environment to link my clinical experiences with the mother-baby continuum to evidence-based practice research while working on my Nursing degree.

 

As a nurse, I worked on the baby-side of the mother-baby continuum. I worked in General Pediatrics, Hematology-Oncology, and in Critical Care Home Health nursing. It was the experience of being a home health nurse that made me realize the importance of health promotion that keeps people with medical issues at home with their families.​

 

My passion for Pediatric patients led me to teach Pediatric clinical rotations as an adjunct professor at City Colleges of Chicago, and later become a tenured Assistant Professor and Certified Nurse Educator (CNE).
