Since August 2013, I have worked as a research nurse for the Center of American Indian Health. I work with the infectious disease team in Shiprock, NM. Currently, I spend most of my time administering vaccines to our participants 2 years old or younger. Cincinnati is my hometown where I have experience working as a neonatal ICU nurse. I love the culture and serenity of the four corners area. I feel that it is a privilege to be working on Navajo Nation for which I am fortunate. Living here I have experienced a variety of new things. I live in Mancos CO with my husband and two children. We spend most of our free time outdoors and traveling.
