I served in the United States Peace Corps in Papua New Guinea just a short time later, working to train and educate village health aides and teach small business skills to a wood carving group. It was there I learned about the importance of cultural influences and the need for mutual respect.
Eventually I took a short term assignment in Montana which led to my permanent residence in Northwest Montana. My past work as Charge Nurse in the Intensive Care Unit and then as Case Manager for Kalispell Regional Healthcare in Kalispell, Montana, provided me with great rewards and profound experiences.
I continue to care for individuals and their families in their greatest time of need.
I work with stakeholders and private entities to ensure a complete understanding of each situation and help resolve issues through comprehensive, detailed assessment and planning.
Through specialty training and accreditations, Eagleview West continues to expand services regularly. More recently, services have been added to include training and education in Alzheimer’s Disease & Dementia Care, private consultations for long term care planning, and speaking engagements.
My education at The Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio, paved the way for a wonderful journey as a Registered Nurse working in diverse settings.
In Detroit, Michigan, I began my career caring for patients with critical needs. I then became the first Gamma Knife nurse in the state of Michigan, working at the Detroit Medical Center. I was trained and worked alongside a neurosurgeon, medical physicist, and radiation oncologist to help patients undergo a sophisticated and highly technical procedure. There I grasped the concept early on about teamwork, collaboration, and strive for excellence.
