I began my career in health care in 1983 as a Emergency Medical Technician and became a Paramedic. I was Paramedic Supervisor of a hospital based ambulance service until 1994. Upon completion of nursing school in 1994 I became a Registered Nurse and worked as a director of nursing for a nursing home until 2004 when I became a regional nurse consultant for the same company. I began my career in hospice in 2008 when I became executive director of Community Hospices of America, now Compassus. I oversee McComb, Natchez and Brookhaven Compassus programs.
