Position: Registered Nurse
What is a day like at AHD in your position?
A typical day at work for me would be seeing my scheduled patient for that day if they are staff assist. I arrive at the patient’s house, set up the NxStage machine and get everything prepped for dialysis treatment. I stay with the patient for the duration of their dialysis, doing vital signs every 30 minutes and monitoring the patient as their treatment progresses. On days when I do not have any staff assist patient scheduled, I would usually go into the office to complete any paperwork needed, as well as follow up with my patient’s inventory to see what I might need to bring for their next treatments.
I have a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and I’m a Registered Nurse. I also have a Health Coach certification that enables me to enhance my communication with my patient’s regarding their care and approach to overall health.
I have worked in the Dialysis specialty for a total of 6 years. I started off as a Patient Care Technician, then became a Licensed Vocational Nurse and worked for Davita. As a Registered Nurse I have worked on a Cardiac step down unit and in an Outpatient Hemodialysis clinic before working in Home Hemodialysis at At Home Dialysis.
What is your favorite part about working in your field or current position?
My patients are my favorite part, and helping them live their lives to the fullest as possible with the flexibility that Home hemodialysis has to offer.
Why did you want to work for AHD?
I love what At Home Dialysis and the whole team stand for. Our patients are our center and priority, and that principle really manifests in our entire team.
What is a moment or accomplishment in your career that you are most proud of?
I am most proud of becoming a Registered Nurse and being able to serve the sick along with an inspirational group of people who share the same passion.
What do you like to do outside of the office?
I am a certified Yoga instructor outside of my full time career. I love doing yoga, working out with my friends, traveling, reading and binge watching tv series.
Hidden Talent? I love to sing.
