As Director of Clinical Services for a successful start up private home care, with a goal of community elders aging in place, developed and implemented educational programs for direct care givers as well as individual plans of care and educational materials for patients and families, engaging them to be active participants in the navigation of the health care continuum. Most recently I have completed an exploratory study utilizing OASIS data to determine risk for re-hospitalization of home care patients. Active participation in professional advisory boards is testament to my passion for nursing and the delivery of safe, effective patient centered care in the community. As a result of my experiences I have demonstrated a record of successful and progressive leadership in the area of community and public health.
