About Shannon

I am passionate and skilled nurse with over 15 years of experience in the nursing field. I have most of my experience with the geriatric population, whom I absolutely adore and have come to understand extremely well which allows me to provide excellent care. I am a sensitive and loving soul and I treat all of my patients as if they are my own family. My list of nursing skills is long and constantly growing. I am also a quick and eager learner who aims to always be the best nurse that I can be. I am trustworthy, empathetic, very nurturing, proficient, and honest.
