  • Certificate: American Nurses Credentialing Center

I joined Southland in 2019.

I currently work at Saint Simons by the Sea, an inpatient psychiatric facility.

I am originally from Birmingham, AL. I attended UAB for my RN and NP degrees.

I started nursing school because I was aware of a huge need for nurses. I didn’t want to worry about struggling to find a job after graduating. During my undergraduate studies my favorite classes were abnormal psychology, sociology and developmental psychology. I enjoyed them so much that when it was time to enroll in NP school, I had no doubt that I wanted to work in psychiatry.

Prior to working for Southland, I gained experience in a variety of inpatient and outpatient settings.  Working in mental health is fulfilling and has added meaning and purpose to my life. I find a lot of joy in helping and encouraging others.   What attracted me to working for Southland is the high retention rate of its employees and the autonomy it has given me as a provider.
