Background: Received BS in Biology in 1977 followed by a BS in nursing in 1979. Both degrees from Albright College in Reading Pa where I worked for 2 years and then came to Atlanta. I then received a Master's degree in Nursing Administration. I worked as a SICU (surgical ICU nurse) and a CCU (coronary care Unit) nurse for many years. I also did medical legal consulting for 4 years and had a company Medical Legal Consultants. I spent 8 years with Hewlett Packard in the medical division and worked with the sales team in the midwest and southeast. In 1999 I began working as a Director in the Emergency Department at Emory and later began as the multisystem director for Emergency Services. Currently I am the DIrector of Operations at EUH.
