I have 39 yrs of nursing experience! I spent ½ of my nursing career proudly serving with the United States Air Force Nurse Corps. While active duty and after retiring I’ve worked in a variety of setting including Med-Surg, Critical Care, Staff Development and Managed Care. I’ve spent the last 8 yrs working with the New Mexico VA Health Care System. For 4 of those years I had the prevalige of working with Veteran’s returning from Iraq and Afghanistan as the OEF/OIF RN Case Manager. I’m currently working as a Care Coordinator in the Home Telehealth Department. After receiving my CCM Certification in 2010 I joined CMSA. Being a member of CMSA and our local Rio Grande Chapter has been a rewarding experience for me. I have the opportunity to work with dedicated board members whose goal is to educate others on Case Management and provide quality education for RN and SW Case Managers!
