RNFA

I started my career in healthcare in 1984 as a surgical technologist. I worked as a surgical tech for 10 years and in 1995 I became an RN. I worked as an OR nurse for one year, then became Director of Surgery and manager of surgery for 11 years. At this point in my career, I became bored with the management position and wanted to return to the operating room table. I went back to school and became an RNFA in 2005. I worked in this capacity until November 2021, when I suffered an injury to my right arm and could no longer operate on patients. I look forward to the future and what my opportunities will be. Thank you.
