I have been a nurse for 13 years. I currently work as an infusion nurse for Accredo Health Group, a subsidiary specialty pharmacy of Express Scripts. I administer immune globulin via IV in patients’ homes or teach patients how to self-administer via SQ. I travel across North Alabama averaging about 500-750 miles per week (why I drive a Prius). I love my job and, more importantly, I love my patients! I have been with Accredo for right at three years. I have been married to my wonderful husband for eight years, and we have three beautiful children.

I was the first person from my immediate family to graduate high school and go to college. I received a summer scholarship to Northeast Alabama Community College. I became a Licensed Practical Nurse in 2006. I received my Associate Degree in Nursing from Snead State Community College and became a Registered Nurse in 2013. While working full time as a nurse circulator with a cosmetic surgeon, I completed my Bachelor’s in Science of Nursing degree from Jacksonville State University in 2014. I am currently in my third semester of the BSN-DNP Family Nurse Practitioner program at The University of Alabama in Huntsville with the anticipation of graduating with my Master’s in December and Doctorate in May 2021.

I live in Pisgah, Alabama, which is located at the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains along the top western edge of Sand Mountain. Pisgah has a population of less than a thousand, and a total area of less than five square miles. I have a passion for educating, advocating, and serving the underserved, underprivileged, and undereducated people of my community. I began my nursing career working for an FQHC. I enjoyed seven years with the organization. I resigned to further my education. Upon graduating in December and becoming an FNP, I seek to join a rural practice in my county. My areas of interest are pediatrics, psychology, and women’s health.

I desire to be a voice and advocate for rural health and communities, especially my own. I have witnessed, first-hand, the detrimental effects of poor health and outcome of poverty-stricken men, women, and, more heartbreakingly, children. I want to make a difference in the lives of those who are underserved, underprivileged, and undereducated. I want to be involved in policy advocacy and to have a voice in influencing our national healthcare agenda for poverty-stricken individuals and families in rural communities.
