Children bring us great joy, deep sorrow, and amaze us every day. Sometimes we wish they would never get hurt, always do what's right, and live an easy life full of pleasure. Thankfully, even though this is not what we are given, we can choose to help them achieve the healthiest life possible.
As a team member at Ptarmigan Connections, I help children and families by providing medication management, complimentary and alternative solutions, mental health education, validation and encouragement. My experience in the field spans more than 10 years. I have worked with very young children to very mature adults, and enjoy all ages and stages of development.
My education is through the University of Alaska's Nursing program where I earned a bachelor's and a master's in nursing science. I am a nationally certified Family Psychiatric and Mental Health Nurse Practitioner and I have a state license for both Registered Nurse and Advance Nurse Practitioner.
