I was born and raised in Charlotte, NC and love every inch of my city. I have been a RN for 4 years solely working with orthopedic patients. I currently work at the Charlotte Orthopedic Hospital where I enjoy caring for patients postoperatively. In my free time I love spending time with my family, listening to music, and studying to receive my Master’s degree in nursing.
What makes me most proud about being an orthopedic nurse is the patient’s recovery; they come in to have surgery due to pain or limited mobility and postoperatively they are free of that pain, walking, & happy. I love to encourage my patients and helping them get back to enjoying life. Taking my first trip with Operation Walk Carolinas will allow me to care for patient that are in the same pain but do not have the same access to have surgery. I look forward to being a part of an amazing team using our skills and compassion to help others less fortunate while experiencing a new culture.
