I would like to serve on the North Carolina Board of Nursing because…

Serving on the North Carolina Board of Nursing over the past three years has truly been an honor. I would love to serve another term in representation of my nursing colleagues. Nursing education is my area of expertise which of course impacts clinical practice. Service has always been a significant component of my professional and personal obligations, and it supports my ethical framework in terms of serving vulnerable communities and populations.

I am a graduate of Coastal Carolina Community College with a Licensed Practical Nurse degree; I graduated in 1985. After graduation I worked in our local Urgent Care for a year as an LPN until I started working at my present job at ECU Health Duplin Hospital (formerly Duplin General Hospital). I have been employed since 1986 and have worked in the Intensive/Coronary Care Unit for the last 37 years.

I would like to serve on the North Carolina Board of Nursing because I feel that I can make a difference. I am passionate about being an LPN and I want to make sure we are recognized as a Nurse. I want to continue to learn the process of the board and share my knowledge with my peers and advocate for LPN’s to be able to work to the fullest of their scope of practice.
