I have worked in the nursing field for twenty years, starting my career as a Certified Nursing Assistant, and completing my program at Eastpoint Community College in Baltimore, Maryland. I then attended Harford Community College in Bel Air, Maryland, where I received my Licensed Practical Nurse and later received my Associate in Science and Nursing. I have been a Registered Nurse for the last seventeen years. By recently deciding to further my education as a nurse, through Chamberlain School of Nursing, I received my Bachelor's in Science and Nursing. I am also a Nurse Educator and have been an Allied Health Instructor for many years. My teaching experience includes ten years of Certified Nursing Assistant instruction, two years of Phlebotomy Technician instruction, and six months of Medical Assistant instruction. I am extremely passionate about teaching. My inspiration for opening Guided Hands Academy came from my desire to help my community by providing entry-level education in nursing to combat the nursing shortage by inspiring future Licensed Practical Nurses or Registered Nurses. Nursing afforded me the opportunity to make a better life for my children. I strongly believe working in the medical field can you change your life as well.
