I am extremely interested in serving a second term as the Treasurer for the membership of AHNA. My personal mission and vision aligns with AHNA, a world in which nursing nurtures wholeness and inspires peace and healing. I am a transformational nurse leader with 20 years’ experience in clinical and nursing operations, quality management, and performance improvement. My greatest personal and professional accomplishments as a holistic leader have been inspiring, mentoring and engaging other nurses. I seek to motivate others to be the best they can be, striving for exceptional nursing care while promoting team-work and improving self-care and personal development. Through my advanced studies, I have expanded my knowledge on the theoretical underpinnings of holistic nursing. In 2012, I relocated to Fort Lauderdale, Florida and joined the Broward Health Imperial Point management team as the Regional Manager of Quality Management, Patient Safety, Epidemiology and recently the Medical Staff Office. In this leadership role, I strongly advocate for aligning quality goals with nursing policies, improving holistic education and strengthening evidence-based practices and research. I am passionate about the nursing profession and want to give back to the profession that has given so much to me. I truly feel my skills will further advance the strategic goals of AHNA.
