Additional Information

I am an actively practicing CRNA with over 18 years of clinical experience including anesthesia management for inpatient and outpatient surgery, endoscopy centers, and dental offices. I worked primarily at a 400 bed community hospital for 15 years before switching completely to an outpatient practice in 2020. I was a lead CRNA for 6 years and I have been the CRNA staffing manager for a small 1099 practice for 9 years. I facilitate all onboarding of CRNAs, as well as handle staffing, payroll, and other duties necessary. I have assisted in the development of an outpatient total joint program and worked on numerous QA projects and updated and reviewed anesthesia policies. I have served as a clinical preceptor for nurse anesthetist training programs, as well as some education for medical students. I also mentor nurses as they prepare for entrance into anesthesia programs. As a clinician and expert I will provide a thorough and detail oriented review of records, case preparation and expert witness services. You can be assured that I will make each case review a priority and ensure a fast but thorough turnaround time.
