I have been a Registered Nurse for 26 years and retired from the U.S. Navy with 23 years of service. As a Registered Nurse, I have many years of leadership/management experience as well as critical care experience. The KCHC mission statement is powerful and motivated me to seek a position on the team. I am proud to see the difference the KCHC team is making in our community.
