I grew up in Albany, LA. In high school, I took a nursing assistant program where I fell in love with the nursing profession and found my passion for helping people. I graduated from Albany High School in 2010 as a certified nursing assistant and continued my education at Southeastern Louisiana University. In 2014, I graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor of Science in nursing. During nursing school, I was presented with the Evelyn Davis Award for displaying characteristics of enthusiasm for the nursing profession, professionalism in nursing, and caring. I proceeded to take my examination to become a registered nurse and started working at North Oaks Medical Center in Hammond, LA. I worked in various units of the hospital, including OB/GYN, pediatrics, well baby, and intermediate care nurseries. In March of 2018, I was recognized with the Nurse Excellence Award from North Oaks Medical Center. I currently work at the Plastic Surgery Center of Baton Rouge as one of the primary nurses and continue to work at North Oaks on the pediatric unit as needed. At the Plastic Surgery Center of Baton Rouge, I take care of patients during surgery. I help get them ready for surgery, circulate in the operating room during surgery, and recover the patients after surgery. I am the perfect fit working in the field of plastic surgery because I enjoy helping others and putting a smile on their faces. I get to help patients look and feel their best while increasing their confidence. When I am not working, I am either studying or spending time with family. I am currently working toward a master’s degree to become a nurse practitioner. I married my husband in 2016, and we just welcomed our first baby, Tucker, in 2018.
