Having had the opportunity to work and serve the public in diverse conditions, I feel privileged to have gained the knowledge and expertise in patient care that I have today. From war-zone nursing in Lebanon, to army hospitals in Saudi Arabia, all that exposure to the variety of emergency nursing made it all worthwhile and rewarding for me. Throughout my career years, I have kept myself up to date on all the advancements in patient care. I have been a faculty and a speaker with the American Heart Association for over 15 years, giving lectures and presentations to professionals and the public on various topics covering Heart Disease, Sudden Cardiac Arrest and Stroke. For the past 10 years, I have been a lead member on the advancement of care of patients with heart attack at St. John Hospital and Medical Center. To this day, my commitment and drive has never been stronger. I believe that nurturing ourselves only comes through nurturing others.
