"After 23 years of working in pediatric health care the biggest satisfaction I gain from my work is through teaching the child and family about their health and heath care needs - whether basic parenting or complicated medical regimens."
"My Master’s thesis was self care of the child with cystic fibrosis. I have spent 13 years at Children’s Hospital and Medical Center as a Pulmonary Clinical Nurse Specialist and Practitioner and developed an asthma education program, clinical pathway for asthma and bronchiolitis and developed a homecare program for ventilator dependent children."
