    Experience & Education

    Registered Nurse

    Jan 2013 - Present
    Inova Health System
    I am an intensive care RN currently working in the adult Med-Surg ICU at Fairfax Hospital. During my 5+ years as an ICU nurse, I've provide care for patients with life-threatening illness or trauma, including complications after invasive surgery. I have extensive experience providing medical and other therapeutic support in the midst of organ failure or as a result of long-term chronic illness. I am very familiar with various respiratory therapy, titrating and administering infusion medications, skin care and wound prevention, post-stroke and cardiac arrest care. In addition to providing care for specific medical issues, I also carefully assess and monitor patient progress. I am familiar with and very comfortable discussing end-of-life and palliative care choices with patients and families.
