I am a freelance writer specializing in health, wellness, advocacy and history. As a registered nurse, my clinical background is in neonatal intensive care, cardiac intermediate care and cardiac surgical step down. As a legal nurse consultant, I dive into medical records to help attorneys understand patients’ course of events. I also coordinate medical care for catastrophic injury claims.
Since being voted as “Best Writer” in my fifth-grade class, I have written poetry and essays in English and Spanish. I have captured the voices of Filipino Americans in oral history projects. Clips from print journalism, college newspapers and cultural events fill my pre-digital era portfolio. I have landed my dream job at a global public relations firm before the market crashed.
Becoming a nurse opens the doors to endless opportunities, merging health care and writing. I have bachelor's degrees in nursing and communication. I am a member of the American Association of Legal Nurse Consultants, Association of Junior Leagues International, Medical Reserve Corps and allied member of Association of Health Care Journalists.
In my spare time, I enjoy traveling, visiting beaches, standup paddleboarding, dance, yoga, improving my Spanish, researching superfoods and spoiling my chihuahua.
