Statement of Belief

I am extremely interested in an active leadership role within the American Holistic Nurses Association. My personal mission and vision aligns with the mission and vision of AHNA, a world in which nursing nurtures wholeness and inspires peace and healing. I am a transformational nurse leader with 17 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. I joined the Center for Professional Nursing Practice at the New York Presbyterian Hospital as the Director of Nursing Quality and Improvement Initiatives in 2011. 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 plan on continuing to conduct holistic nursing research, writing and publishing. I truly feel my skills will further advance the strategic goals of the AHNA.
