As a RN with 25 years’ experience, I have had the honor of participating in hospice for 16 of those years. With opportunities to grow and advance through the different positions, from RN Case Manager to Administrator, I can truly say that Director of Clinical Services is my “sweet spot.” This is an encore opportunity for me with Compassus as I served in this position in Shreveport, Louisiana, before the office closed. Because of that prior positive experience, I was pleased to reassure our colleagues here in Jackson, MS (formerly Hospice Advantage) of the integrity of the Compassus organization. The ability to be a part of such an awesome team of loving hearts, to share the wealth of experiences that I have been blessed with to grow the potential leaders on the team, and to help foster more understanding and acceptance of this blessed gift we share are only a few of the reasons that I love what I am allowed to do.

I have been working in Hospice since early March of 2016. My personal journey began with Hospice in August of 2012. In early 2010 my mom waws diagnosed with cancer. It was a long and hard journey but we did not have to go at it alone. Hospice was there for us for when we needed them the most, and that is why I love what I do. I hope to pass on my passion for hospice to others that are in need of our services. My goal is to be apart of the rest of their journey, and to ensure that they maintain the highest level of comfort and dignity.
