I am an RN graduate of Skagit Valley College Nursing school and obtained my Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the University of Washington. As a recent graduate, I was searching for an avenue of nursing where I could make a positive impact on those I care for. Transitioning out of active addiction isn’t easy and through my own experiences and interactions with people I love, who are currently battling or have battled addiction and substance use, working at PCTD offers an environment for me to provide holistic empathetic care during this first step towards positive change. I place a high value on leading life with integrity, compassion and positivity and incorporate these values into everything I do. As a single mom, I spend my free time with my 2 beautiful daughters. We enjoy being outdoors, taking day trips for sight seeing and spending quality time together playing games and being creative.
