In 2001, I began my nursing career at Children's Medical Center at Dallas on the Pulmonology Unit. The unit primarily cared for children with chronic illnesses that required tracheostomy and ventilator care (many of which also required gastrostomy tube care).
In January 2003, I worked as a travel nurse at the University of New Mexico Hospital staffing in 3 departments (PICU, Pediatric Step Down and Neonatal ICU). I gained a vast amount of knowledge in the 8 months I was there caring for children on ECMO, dialysis as well as children with cancer. I also worked in the Neonatal ICU and wow what a privilege that was!
In August 2003, I returned to work at Children’s Medical Center at Dallas on the Pulmonology Unit. Although working at Children's was my dream job, for personal reasons I moved to the RGV in 2004 where I began working in the Pediatric Intensive Care unit at VBMC-Harlingen. While at VBMC-Harlingen I held positions in Nursing Education, Lead PALS Instructor and eventually Clinical Nurse Manager of Pediatrics and PICU.
In 2008, I moved into the Home Health Industry returning to my first love as a nurse in caring for special needs children with chronic illnesses. I held positions both as a pediatric private duty nurse as well as Case Manager. I have also worked as relief staff in PICU at Edinburg Children’s Hospital.
Throughout my career, I have enjoyed the privilege of caring for many special needs children as well as serving as a mentor to many nursing colleagues.
I have always felt that the pediatric population of the RGV is largely underserved. In 2014, I created Little Miracles Home Health in an attempt to improve the quality of care that is being given to our pediatric special needs children with chronic illnesses.
Our mission, vision and strive for excellence revolves around providing specialized care to children in need.
With over 44 years of combined nursing experience, our management team is comprised of some of the most experienced and trusted clinical professionals in the community.
