Parish Nurse

 

My ministry is Parish Nursing which I am passionate about.  I am an RN whose PRIMARY focus is the St. Rita Faith Community.   I have served St. Rita Parish family for over 10 years and I have loved every minute.  I work evenings and weekends.

My goal is health promotion and disease prevention - providing holistic care, connecting the mind, body and spirit for each patient so they can strive for wellness!  The emphasis is to promote independence and prevent decline; support lifestyle changes as they relate to health and wellness; offer health education and health tips.

I support all patents and their families by making home visits, accompany patients to their doctor's appointments; make Emergency Room visits, hospital visits, nursing home visits, assist with end-of-life journeys, and "like" our St. Rita family to our Pastor and staff.  Please feel free to contact me at This email address is being protected from spambots.
