She graduated with her BSN from State University of New York at Stony Brook and her MS from University of Maryland at Baltimore. She received her Acute Care Nurse Practitioner degree from University of Massachusetts at Worcester. She previously worked as a Critical Care Transport Nurse for Boston MedFlight for about 9 years.

She brings a unique set of skills to BMC and her ability to thrive in challenging environments is a tremendous asset to the team. She is passionate about taking care of the sickest and complex patients.

During her spare time she enjoys traveling, hiking, renovating her home, and is an accomplished sailor.
