I started my career as an RN at the Creighton University working in the Intensive Care Unit. I was offered a job opportunity to help develop a Thoracic Surgery Practice located in Los Angeles at the University of Southern California (USC). In 1996, I received my masters in nursing as an acute care nurse practitioner at the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA). The last several years I have worked in the Thoracic Surgery practice, which had a heavy focus on cancer treatment at Keck Medical Center of University of Southern California. In the past year, I have returned to Nebraska and had the privilege to join the Nebraska Cancer Specialists. I am proud to be part of this dedicated team who are committed to provide exceptional, quality health care.
