Additional Information

I am a meticulous and motivated nurse anesthetist with 19 years of critical care nursing experience and 12 years as a nurse anesthesiologist. The majority of my years in anesthesia were in a Level 1 Trauma Center. In addition to my Level 1 Trauma experience, my anesthesia practice has been in various institutional hospital-based sizes, including rural hospitals and outpatient settings across multiple states. I hold APRN licenses in Tennessee and Mississippi. I have served as a clinical preceptor for student nurse anesthetist training programs throughout my career. Having worked in multiple facilities, with various surgeons, and with many different patient populations, I have come to appreciate both the similarities and the subtleties of anesthesia practice. I have a solid nursing background, a history of diverse surgeries, procedures, and techniques involving different anesthesia modalities, and an exceptional talent for attention to detail. Besides my experience in traditional hospital-based practices, I have had the opportunity these past five years to transition into a solo practitioner without the supervision of an anesthesiologist. Being a solo practitioner has allowed me to work more often in office-based clinics and ambulatory surgery centers, locations with the fastest-growing venue for anesthesia delivery outside the traditional hospital-based operating room and represent the highest-growing number of deaths outside of a hospital. My experience and knowledge working in these surgical suites, with their lack of infrastructure and safety nets inherent in hospitals, would benefit any malpractice anesthesia litigation.
