I LOVE being a member of the RAD team! I have been fortunate enough to work with this dedicated group since 2008 and it has been one of my most rewarding positions. My professional experience has been focused on Perinatal and Women’s Health. Prior to joining RAD, my career has included working in Labor and Delivery, Newborn and Intensive Care Nursery, OB Triage, and an OB/GYN Office. I have participated in research projects and recently had my first journal article published in a professional nursing journal. Throughout my career, I have had the pleasure of assisting families during their pregnancies and sharing in the miracle of birth. I have always been fascinated by the phenomenon of pregnancy.
As a Nurse Practitioner at Reproductive Associates of Delaware, I have made the transition from helping women through their pregnancy to helping families achieve a much-desired pregnancy. I personally had challenges with infertility, and believe that experience helps me relate to our patients. I most enjoy my role as educator. I believe that education empowers our patients, helps to decrease anxiety, and increases compliance. I appreciate the time that RAD provides for us to spend time with our patients sharing information and providing support.
Much of RADs vision for the future involves the use of cutting edge technology. My special interests at RAD include Pre-implantation Genetic Screening and Fertility Preservation, which are exciting state –of-the-art programs currently available at RAD. The balance between offering emotional support and education as well as providing advanced technologic procedures makes being a part of the RAD Team an honor.
