More About Me
I have enjoyed my Nursing career since beginning as a Nursing Assistant at Northwest Hospital in Randallstown, MD in 1976. My first passion was ICU,where I developed the skills needed to maintain the highest standards of professional excellence. before going into management.I have, over the years, promoted relationships based on dependability and honesty, establishing effective working relationships. I have always tried to convey a positive personal image, striving to grow professionally through continuous study and participation.As a Director of Nursing, I have learned to recognize the important roles of responsibility, authority and accountability, and being able to accurately assess management effectiveness.I take pride in my job and am totally committed to the organization, employer and employees.
