Pediatric CRNA Educator

I have been a registered nurse since 2003. My entire nursing career has been at Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC). I started as a trauma bedside nurse, and advanced through being a charge nurse to the trauma assistant manager. I decided to go back to CRNA School in November of 2006.During CRNA School I found that my calling was to be a pediatric nurse anesthetist. The joy that pediatric patients brought to my life was immeasurable. In January of 2010, I was hired by Vanderbilt University Medical Center to work as a Nurse Anesthetist at MCJCHV. I have since loved coming to work daily,value my colleagues and profession. In April of 2014, I took the pediatric CRNA educator role, and now continuously work to improve our education endeavors throughout our department. In 2016 I did perioperative education regarding malignant hyperthermai that spread throughout our pediatric hosptial and to all the advanced practice nurses at VUMC. Helped in coordinating simulation training for MH crisis.
