Assistant Director of Nursing
I was born and raised in West Tennessee and moved to Smyrna after marrying my husband, Kenny, in 2010.
I became a nurse in 2003 after my sister was diagnosed with leukemia. I saw how much of a difference a caring and compassionate nurse could make in the life of their patient. I spent 15 years working in long-term care and clinical research. After beginning my recovery journey, I started my career in addiction nursing 3 years ago at Brentwood Springs Detox, and I love it! It is truly a calling for me. I love sharing my story with our patients and giving them hope for life after addiction.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family and traveling with my husband.
Bio coming soon.
