I joined Unity Care NW in June of 2018. I received my MSN from the University of California with a focus on Family Practice that included HIV care. My first job as an ARNP was as an HIV Clinician Consultant with the Clinician Consultation Center at the University of California where I provided clinical consultation through a national CDC-funded hotline on management of HIV, HBV, HCV exposure management & Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) for high risk patients. Following that, I moved to Washington and worked almost 3 years as a Family Nurse Practitioner at Yakima Valley Farmworkers Clinic’s Miramar Health Center in Pasco, providing primary care services to all ages.
What I like about working in Community Health is being part of a larger community working towards the greater good, and also getting to work with diverse and interesting people and patients.
