I am a native of Massachusetts, but have lived in Virginia for the past 43 years with my husband Bob. We have two sons, who both live nearby and we are blessed to have 5 grandchildren. Three grandsons ages 21, 17 and 13-we thought we were done until we had two granddaughters who are now almost 7 years old. We have a 15 pound miniature dachshund, Oliver. My husband and I love to travel and spend a lot of time in the sun and water (and him on the golf course). We have recently taken up boating! I have done nephrology nursing for the majority of my nursing career and it is my niche. In April of 2021 I changed jobs for the first time in 32 years, and proud to support the industry on the vendor side. I am currently working for Diality, Inc. as a Clinical Training Consultant. I contribute back to the industry by being active in professional organizations such as the Renal Healthcare Association, NTDS, ANNA, NKF and NNCC. One thing you might not know about me is that I love to write questions for certification exams.
