I came to Lightyear Health because after working for 20 years in acute
care hospital settings, with 18 years in Emergency Nursing specifically, I was ready
for a different environment and challenge. I have witnessed firsthand the
devastation of a patient falling, and I have also seen the stress of
advancing dementia on both the patient and their families. I recognized
that preventing an individual from needing to come to the emergency
department was best, but I had no idea how to do so. When I heard
about Lightyear Health and the work they are doing to bring exceptional
healthcare, using advanced technology, to a population that very often
has limited options, I was intrigued.Lightyear Health was actively looking
for solutions to big problems. When I spoke with Dr. Nicole Kelleher and with
Rachel Ward, our Clinical Services Director, and I heard the passion and
conviction they have for this work, and their desire to bring a team of
exceptional caregivers together to empower patients, families, and
assisted living staff, I immediately knew I wanted to be a part of this
As an RN Clinical Coordinator at Lightyear Health, my role is to advocate for our patients, coordinate care, and be a source of support and resource for my patients, their families, community staff and our providers. I wear a lot of hats and I enjoy that challenge.
I have a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and have worked as a bedside RN for 20 years, with 18 years in Emergency Nursing specifically.
Outside of work, my passions are travel and photography. I enjoy exploring and learning about new, diverse cultures and people watching. Ive visited 45 countries so far and I would love to (eventually) visit 100!
