Bio

I am a board-certified Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner and registered nurse first assist in private practice with Texas Health Care Obstetrics & Gynecology in Fort Worth, Texas as well as adjunct clinical faculty with the University of Texas at Arlington College of Nursing & Health Innovation. I have been with Texas Health Care OB/GYN since February 2016 and UT Arlington since July 2013. I have also served as the Governance Chair for Sigma Theta Tau International Delta Theta chapter for the past five years. My research interests include improvement of associated healthcare risk, ERAS outcomes, high-risk obstetrics, and adolescent gynecology. Prior to my career in healthcare, I developed a passion for the liberal arts, specifically history, in which I hold a baccalaureate degree from East Texas Baptist University.

I earned a Bachelor of Arts in History with minor in Religion from East Texas Baptist University in 2008, a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from UT Arlington in 2011, a Master of Science in Nursing Leadership from UT Tyler in 2013, a Master of Science in Nursing as a Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner from the University of Cincinnati in 2015, and Doctor of Nursing Practice from the University of Oklahoma Health Science Center in 2018. Prior to my NP career, I worked in the cardiovascular intensive care unit, operating room, and post anesthesia recovery units. I have presented a wide array of healthcare and historical research at the UT Arlington Innovation in Healthcare Research Conference, Louisiana Historical Association Conference, and National Phi Alpha Theta Historical Honor Society Conference. I was also invited to present my work at the 2018 Sigma Theta Tau International Research Congress in Melbourne, Australia. Most recently, my article “TeamSTEPPS: An evidence-based approach to reduce clinical errors threatening safety in outpatient settings: An integrative review” was published in the Journal of Healthcare Risk Management in April 2019.

For the last five years, I have served on the Test Development committees for the Competency and Credentialing Institute (CCI) developing the CNOR exam. I am a member of Sigma Theta Tau Honor Society in Nursing (STTI), American College of Obstetrics & Gynecology (ACOG), Society of Maternal-Fetal Medicine (SMFM), American College of Nurse Midwives (ACNM), National Association of Nurse Practitioners in Women’s Health (NPWH), American Society for Colposcopy and Cervical Pathology (ASCCP), American Association of Nurse Practitioners (AANP), Texas Nurse Practitioners Association--Legacy Member (TNP), Fort Worth Region Nurse Practitioners (FWRNP), Association of Perioperative Nurses--Lifetime Member (AORN), Association of Women's Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses (AWHONN), American Nurses Association (ANA), & Phi Alpha Theta Honor Society in History (PAT).

I am excited to advance my career as a nurse midwife in order to help foster and progress nursing excellence and research in the advanced practice environment. I have a strong leadership background that I am ready to move from my nursing world into the advanced practice realm. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, playing the piano, international travel, and spending time with my 15-year-old daughter, Peyton, and our best friends.
