AAPPN has been a part of my professional growth and development as a PMHNP from the very beginning of my graduate work at the University of Washington. What I have appreciated the most is the opportunity AAPPN provides for us to nurture relationships between one another as Advanced Practice Nursing professionals, connecting our different practices and geographic locations under one lovely umbrella.
I have been a Nurse since 1994, working first as an RN in Public Health and then in Mental Health. I completed my MSN in 2012 and DNP in 2013, both through the University of Washington. I am currently working in Primary Care as a Psychiatric Consultant, prior to this I was working in Community Mental Health and maintaining a small private practice. I have a special interest in Perinatal Mental Health and Infant Mental Health but enjoy working with people of all ages. I live in Tacoma with my partner and our daughter.
