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!
