Biography

I'm a longtime Community Health RN, passionate about health equity issues and community-led health programming. In more than twenty years as a Registered Nurse in community health, schools, and psychiatric settings in Charlottesville and New York City, I have worked successfully for better healthcare access and outcomes with such diverse client populations as undocumented mothers, elderly dementia patients, and homeless teenagers. With years of firsthand experience in home visiting, I'm a passionate believer in the power of WellAWARE's neighbor-to-neighbor model to overcome barriers to high-quality care. My guiding principle in this work is to let communities lead the way and let the services follow.
