I live in the PNW with my dog and cat. I enjoy hiking, backpacking, yoga, laughing, being outdoors, and rock climbing. Continuing to learn is one of my passions. Outside of coaching I work as a Surgical Oncology Nurse in the hospital.
While working in the hospital, I have realized how much my patients could benefit from not only additional education and preventative self care, but the feeling of empowerment to take control of their own health and feel autonomy again. This is what sparked my interest in becoming a nurse coach. I am a huge advocate of mental health for all. I provide one-on-one coaching as well as occasional workshops. In the future I want to do group coaching.
In 2014 I graduated with my Bachelor's of Science in Biology and minor in Psychology from Western Oregon University. My intent was to become a veterinarian. I worked in the veterinary field as a vet tech until I decided I needed more opportunity for growth.
In 2020 I graduated with my Bachelor's in Nursing from Concordia University. I worked in home health with medically fragile children and on an inpatient psychiatric unit. I am currently working in surgical oncology taking care of post-operative patients, often with a new cancer diagnosis.
Spring of 2023 I finished the Nurse Coach Collective program to become a nurse coach and am a Board Certified Holistic Nurse.
