Nurse & Consultant
It’s been an honor to work as a Registered Nurse for more than thirty years. My field of specialty is clinical field of organ donation, caring for donor families and advocating for organ, tissue and eye donation, while also coordinating a complex clinical process. I’ve seen the positive impacts that destress conversations can have and have benefitted personally from discussing the impact of critical incidents. Those conversation have helped me continue to care for the patients and families I serve.
Earlier in my career, I worked in hospital and nursing home environments in the ICU, medical-surgical unit, obstetrics and cared for the elderly. I’ve seen and felt the impact of end-of-life care and have been privileged to be present with patients and families at the end of life.
I believe that health is an ongoing and holistic continuum, and that destress conversations can help normalize stressful events to keep providers in the career of their choosing.
