I have worked in different patient care settings including  being a Flight Nurse and still continue to work at Lehigh Valley Hospital in the Trauma Neuro Intensive Care Unit. In the ICU, I have a total responsibity for 1-2 patients which includes all aspects of care. I also have been involved with volunteer EMS and fire services since 1989, which has given me numerous levels of prehospital experience.  In addition, I also received my Health Professional certificate in 2010 and continue to work as a PHRN for the Lehighton Ambulance Association. I believe that the different levels of care have made me a well rounded health care provider.  I understand the importance of all levels of care and support the team effort in the care of those in need of emergency services.
