In 2010 graduated with honors from the Associate Degree in Nursing at Miami Dade College and started working at the University of Miami Hospital (UMH) as a MedSurge/Telemetry nurse mostly caring for patients pre and post cardiothoracic procedures. Many of them coming from Cardiac ICU status post open heart. In 2011 was accepted to the Critical Care Residency program working as a Neuro ICU nurse in UMH. This same year enrolled in the BSN program at Miami-Dade College graduating in 2012. During my time in ICU I worked very closely with UMH neurosurgeons to provide care for patients post brain and spinal surgeries to treat Cerebrovascular Accidents, Brain Tumors and spinal deficits. Became certified as a Critical Care RN (CCRN) in 2013 and started a new role as a Cardiac Cath Lab nurse. In this new role assisted in a variety of cardiac, neuro and vascular interventions for patients with cardiovascular disease. Some of these procedures were based on leading research with stem cells to help improve cardiac function in patients post myocardial infarction. My career as an educator began in the Fall semester of 2014 as an Adjunct Clinical Instructor for UM SONHS undergraduate program helping the BSN students improve their clinical skills by providing hands-on experience. During this time I enrolled in my master’s degree as a Family Nurse Practitioner at Barry University. Graduated from Barry University ARNP FNP track in May 2016.
