I live in Western Kentucky with my daughter and my fiancée and where I have been a bedside nurse for many years. I started off my health care career as a certified nursing assisstant and orderly. I than began my journey as a nurse, an assistant professor, and a director of a medical floor. I enjoy reading, writing, and I am a big movie fan when the time allows. I have recently achieved my Doctorate of Nursing Practice from Capella University in Organizational Leadership in nursing.
