About Malissa

Hi there! My name is Malissa and I absolutely love being a nurse! I enjoy making my patients lives a little easier by providing the best care they deserve. I have been on the receiving end of healthcare during times when the care wasn't so great and I will never forget how that made me feel. I vowed to myself that I would never be responsible for causing that hopeless feeling in others. My patients are individuals, with individual needs. Too often providers get wrapped up in the day to day schedule and forget that what is routine to us is not routine to the patient. Seeing my patients smile during their weakest moments (literally) lets me know I am doing my job well. Patients and family members need to know they are being heard and they have a right to express their opinion regarding care being provided to them and their loved ones. Compassion, empathy, listening skills merged together with physical clinical skills makes for an excellent patient experience and that is my passion.

Behavior health nurse. I work with kiddos who are having a mental health crisis. We evaluate and assess our patients. Then we make a plan of care specific to their needs which involves a team of health care professionals ranging from mental health technicians and RN's as well as licensed social workers and physicians. Our goal is to successfully return them to their communities or treat them in-house until they are able.
