For the past 7 years I have been employed at a highly regarded outpatient wound care clinic in Goleta, CA. As one of the country’s leading wound care centers, I am very proud of the education and care which we provide. I feel confident that I can assist you in any cases where wound care management or gerontology is an issue. Prior to becoming a certified wound care nurse, I was providing wound care in the home as a home health/hospice nurse, as well as the various healthcare settings over the course of my career, including the ICU. I work efficiently in a timely manner and I am very familiar with electronic medical records from both acute care and long term care settings. I am confident that I can deliver a solid and competent testimony both on the witness stand and in depositions. I am board certified in the field of wound care and gerontological nursing.
