Biographical Sketch:
After graduating with my ASN I worked for four years on the dual diagnoses (substance abuse and mental health) adult and adolescent inpatient units at Lutheran Medical Center. In 1990, I moved to Seattle and worked at the Professional Review Organization for Washington, a managed care company, doing retrospective reviews of Medicaid inpatient psychiatric stays in Washington, Alaska and Idaho. Returning to Omaha I headed up the Utilization Management department at Lutheran Medical Center / Richard Young and later worked on the Psychiatric Inpatient Adult, Adolescent and Intensive Care Units.

In 1996 I moved to Lincoln and worked full time on the Adult Inpatient Unit at Bryan LGH West and at the Psychiatric Crisis Center. When I returned to school I left to work part-time for Magellan Behavioral Health doing Nebraska Medicaid reviews. When my job was eliminated I worked part time at Saint Monica’s, a dual diagnosis women’s treatment facility in Lincoln.

When I graduated with my Master’s Degree I worked three part time jobs. I joined Lincoln Psychiatric Group, a private practice. I worked at Centerpointe, a dual diagnoses adult treatment program including their PIER Program (an ACT team). Finally, I taught for the UNMC College of Nursing in LIncoln from 2006-2010, initially teaching classroom psychiatric nursing to the accelerated students and eventually teaching clinical at the child, adolescent and adult psychiatric units at BryanLGH West and at the Lincoln Regional Center. When I returned to Omaha I worked three part time jobs. The first was at Catholic Charities doing outpatient medication management with adults for 7 years, including work with inmates of the Federal Bureau of Prisons. The second was three years at the Sarpy County Jail doing medication management with the inmates. The third was two years at Encounter Telehealth seeing clients in an outpatient clinic in Kearney, NE. During this period of time I precepted UNMC MSN students during 3 separate semesters. When my jobs at Sarpy, Encounter and Catholic Charities ended I spent a year doing outpatient adult medication management at Douglas County Hospital. I joined Nebraska Medicine Outpatient Psychiatry part time in June of 2019. I particularly like working with clients who have experienced trauma and those with severe and persistent mental illnesses such as Schizophrenia.
