“My passion is in ostomy care. Early in my career I saw the profound impact the WOC nurses had onpatients with new ostomies by helping them mentally and physically adjust to new life with a stoma. I became a WOC nurse to have a similar impact on patients.”

“Helping an ostomate adapt to lifestyle changes on the journey to their best life by combining science and creativity is most rewarding. The opportunity to meet so many incredibly unique people throughout my nursing career has been a tremendous gift.”
BSN, RN, CWON
“I love helping people figure out how to successfully manage ostomies! There’s nothing quite like helping a patient, caregiver or nurse learn what they needed to have that ‘Aha! Moment’. Helping them realize that they CAN do this; and while life is different it doesn’t have to be worse. It’s just the best feeling.”
