Since obtaining my Registered Nurse license in 1992, I have practiced full-time in the Emergency Department. Prior to becoming a nurse, I volunteered for three years as an Emergency Medical Technician with Greensville Volunteer Rescue Squad. In addition, my parents were both charter and life members of the Brunswick Volunteer Rescue Squad.
