Biography

I have been a Registered Nurse who has worked in Antelope Valley Hospital's (AVH) Emergency Department (ED) for the past 10 years. I also work in EDs of various LA County and Ventura County hospitals, as a registry RN. I am a Los Angeles County Mobile Intensive Care Nurse (MICN), who collaborates with paramedics and provides orders needed on scene. I was previously the Pre-Hospital Care Coordinator and Pediatric Liaison Nurse of AVH, with the responsibilities of overseeing AVH MICNs, the Base Station and the pediatric ER specialty status, in addition to providing MICN, EMT and Paramedic education. Currently, I am the Nurse Educator for all stations of Downey Fire Department. I am currently in a Master's Degree-Nurse Practitioner program. 

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

I believe AVH is in dire need of leadership that focuses on quality patient care for every patient that enters its doors. Financial status of the hospital is undoubtedly important to keep its doors open. However, money needs to be spent properly for the benefit of all the patients. Staffing levels must improve to provide care and treatment in a timely manner. Every unoccupied bed should be utilized. Every staff member should have the knowledge and skill to provide quality services to every patient, through continued education. AVH needs to collaborate with other facilities and providers throughout the Antelope Valley to provide consistency, safety, and quality care for every patient. Retention of quality physicians must be a priority. Specialty Centers must be maintained and improved-Trauma, Labor & Delivery, Pediatrics, Sexual Assault Response Team, Stroke, and (Cardiac) ST Elevation Myocardial Infarction.
