About Patricia

I have always desired to help others in need and became a LVN in October 1991. I have worked in a few medical settings including Skilled Nursing Facilities and Home Health. I have worked with geriatric patients as well as pediatric ones and also adults. I left the field for a several years to raise my son, but am looking to once again use my skills to help promote nurturing care in an acute or long-term setting.
