Overview

My name is Sara and I am a board-certified adult nurse practitioner looking for opportunities to combine my significant academic achievements with other interests such as writing and proofreading.

I have many interests outside of the medical arena along with the determination to pursue these interests in a new and creative manner.

This sometimes means I have to step outside of my comfort zone and use skills I have developed through experience and other education.

My extensive education and background exemplifies my commitment to...

Service Description

I am a board-certified Adult Nurse Practitioner with over 39 years of combined nursing experience. I have been a member of the American Association of Nurse Practitioners since 2000.

I have worked primarily with adults in the hospital and home setting. My work has included published articles on case studies I encountered in practice, becoming very adept in multiple EMR systems, and have participated in two medical mission trips to Guatemala.

Explaining difficult medical situations in simple, easy to understand terms is enjoyable because I love communicating with people. Patients come to me for counseling, understanding and encouragement. I have written easy-to-understand templates for patient handouts.

I am currently involved with Teaching English as a Second Language at my church which I enjoy. Years ago, I very much enjoyed taking on newspaper journalism for a short time. However, we didn’t have Microsoft Word then– something I am very fluent in now as well as other technology including multiple EMR systems. I have become a very good typist paying attention to much detail.

I also taught a nutrition class at the college level which was enjoyable. The kids were great and the experience rewarding.

I have developed many other interests outside of medicine such as traveling, cooking, value of eating nutritional foods, regular exercise, reading extensively, music...
