    Post Acute Care Coordinator

    I have been a nurse for over 20 years, working in ICU, case management, long term care as a Director of Nursing and several years as an administrator. I am excited to be a part of this state-of-the art rehab to home facility. I believe that as a nurse, you have the chance to leave a positive mark on someone's life daily. To be there for someone when they need you most is a great feeling.

Sand beaches and palm trees are a few of my favorite backgrounds! My family also includes my two Pomeranians, Bear and Roo who make me smile!

    I moved to Columbia 5 years ago from Macon, Mo. after downsizing from a 20-acre exotic animal farm to 3 acres and 2 dog/humans Daisy & Oliver. I have 4 amazing grown children, Robert, Dallas, Jami and Jacob along with 2 precious grandchildren Kenna and Wilder. Family gatherings are a common thing at my place.
    I spend my time with my dogs, gardening, hiking, exercise and enjoying live music as much as time allows.
