“I started my nursing career at Pikeville Medical Center in 2011 after receiving my Associate’s Degree in Nursing from the University of Pikeville. In the beginning, I worked nights on the Cardiothoracic Vascular Unit as a staff RN but was promoted to shift supervisor a year later. In 2015, I became director of the Cardiac Unit and Centralized Telemetry and in 2017 I obtained my BSN in Nursing. I truly believe in working hard and always trying to better myself, both personally and in my career.
For me, Pikeville Medical Center has been such a great place to work. Throughout the hospital, the administrative team makes sure the staff has the equipment they need to provide the best care possible to our patients. I was promoted to my current position of Assistant Vice President of Patient Services in 2018 where I now oversee Med/Surg, Pediatrics, Ortho/Neuro, Surgical and the Stroke Program. I am thankful for those who have helped me throughout my career, and I am blessed to now have the opportunity to help make PMC an even better place for current and future nurses.”
