Registered Nurse

I have been a registered nurse in urgent, outpatient, and critical care settings for ten years. In these settings I worked as part of a healthcare team to deliver holistic care for the clients.

In my position at Dixie State’s Booth Wellness Center my care for students, faculty, and staff is not only focused on treating illness, but promoting wellness. I coordinate care between our center’s medical practitioners and mental health therapists and, if needed, connect clients to outside agencies. As part of quality assurance, I follow up with client referrals to ensure needs are being met. Outside of the clinic, I participate in outreach activities to raise awareness of university and community resources. Collaborating with other providers and services, I can provide individualized care with consistence and continuity.
