Hometown: Rome, NY – I grew up on a small Christian campground
Education: While in high school I received my cosmetology degree and license. After a short time of working in a salon, I decided I loved helping people but wanted to do more. I decided to go to Toccoa Falls College in North East, GA where I received my B.S. in Christian Education and a minor in Bible & Theology. After several years working for a non-profit mission organization, I decided I wanted to learn more about healthcare. I received my EMT-Intermediate license through Lanier Technical College. Still EMT-Intermediate wasn’t enough for me, I loved medicine and patient care so continued my education at Mid-State Technical College and studied nursing.

I also schedule surgeries, work on authorizations with insurance companies, room patients, and educate patients about surgeries and diagnoses, and more.
Favorite thing about working at SPO: I love the friendly family atmosphere and the emphasis on excellent patient customer service. The providers are all very understanding, caring and pleasant to work with.

If you could be any office supply item, what would you be: I would be a staple because it holds things together. I like to think of myself as a staple, someone who holds the team together through any changes or chaos in whatever atmosphere or team I’m involved with.
