My professional nursing career has spanned about 30 years. In my early practice I worked primarily in intensive care nursing. The majority of that time I was in mid-level management. During my mid-career, I worked primarily in the nursing home setting as a study coordinator for several large nursing home research projects. From there, I reentered the management role as the Director of Nursing for Sinclair Home Care, which was the practice site for a study about aging in place. My work experience, which has included hospitals, nursing homes, and home health, has great depth and has inspired me to understand more about the problems and issues facing nurses as they work with frail older adults.
