About Lisa

I worked as an LPN until October 2016 when I was diagnosed to breast cancer. Making life changes I decided to step back from the high paced employment I was working in at the time and step into a more relaxed role of health care, allowing me to continue with a more direct care role with my patients (or clients). Much like my role as a hospice nurse. I enjoyed this level of care during my time there. I prefer not to be beholden to the demands of "productivity markers" so prevalent in health care today and be able to focus more on the time and care of a person. I am a caring,knowledgeable,respectful person and I enjoy what I do.
