I was born and raised on the beautiful island of Jamaica, and I came to the USA in November 2018 in search of new experiences in nursing. My educational background in nursing started in 2012 at The University of the West Indies (UWI) School of Nursing, Mona, where I completed my BSc.N. I have since completed my MSc.N (majoring in nursing education) at the same institution.
My career history is well-rounded, having worked as a clinical nurse, a clinical nurse educator, preceptor, and a nurse lecturer in a university. I have found all my work experiences rewarding, but my greatest love and passion has been teaching nursing students (I did this at the university level for five years before migrating.
In December 2021, I completed three years of working as a registered nurse at Allegheny General Hospital to ensure I would successfully transition to a career as a registered nurse in the USA. I presently work as Adjunct faculty at both PTC and CCAC. I find nursing education to be a very gratifying career pathway because of the opportunities to mentor, coach, and support students and recent nursing graduates.
I love to travel with my husband and our friends, I have a passion for cooking, I love shopping, and I love watching romance movies and medical drama series.
For me, diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (in short) mean that all persons get the same opportunities. They are respected, heard, and valued regardless of their unique skin color, gender, religion, etc.
