Born Aug. 15th in Plymouth Indiana.
Graduated from R.L.Turner high school in Carrollton, Texas June 1st 1972 with a scholarship in Acting and entered the University of Texas at Arlington.
My parents said ” Get a real job” so I went to work at Brackenridge Hospital in Austin Texas as an orderly in 1974 and on June 1st 1978 graduated from Brackenridge Hospital School of Nursing with a diploma in Nursing.
I worked at Brackenridge Hospital for 7 years and decided to change my scope of practice and went into LTC skilled nursing and rehab. In 1980 I began my journey in LTC and I will tell you it has been very rewarding with many ups and downs.
I continue to “dabble” in the acting piece but Nursing has been my life and patient care is my number one priority.
