Nursing has been good to me, and I want to continue to be a good ambassador for nursing and the patients that entrust their care to me. Nurses should meet patients where they are and take them where they need to be instead of expecting them to already be there. Advance practice nurses must lead the way in reducing health care disparities and access to care issues from the bedside to the board room and reach the capital beltway to those who make decisions on health care. She has testified to the joint boards in Richmond and walked the halls of Va GA educating our lawmakers on the impact and outcomes of advance practice nurses. She was award the Advocacy Award by the state VNCP in 2019. She is passionate that “nurses will change the face of health care, one step and one patient at a time."

Blue Ridge Medical Center
Our Mission is to provide quality health care accessible to all people of Nelson County and neighboring communities; and to improve their general health and well-being through prevention, education, and treatment. Our Vision is that Blue Ridge Medical Center is a vital, vibrant health center which is recognized as the preferred provider of primary health care for people in the community and which accomplishes access to primary care and equalized disparities in health outcomes for all people of our service area.. BRMC is a federally qualified health center, whose operations are overseen by a volunteer Board of Directors made up of community members, most of whom are also our patients. BRMC is accredited by The Joint Commission ( http://www.jointcommission.org ). This is the same organization that accredits hospitals. In order for an organization to be accredited, a team of independent health care professionals performs a strenuous survey of the organization about every three years to determine that they meet the highest standards in their field. Less than 10% of all primary care organizations in the United States have achieved this accreditation.
