"I grew up in lovely Madison, Wisconsin and then lived in Washington, DC prior to relocating to the Triangle Area. I love exploring the cities, mountains, and beaches of the state. I have family spread across multiple states and even countries, so I do a lot of traveling in order to see them. In my free time I keep it pretty low key- spending time with my husband, son, and friends, reading books, and binge watching the occasional tv show. I love to check out a new restaurant or see live music. I spent the first part of my nursing career working in the hospitals, then got a Master’s in Public Health, and returned to nursing in the community setting which is a natural fit for my interests and blends my nursing and public health backgrounds perfectly."
