Born and raised in the Philippines, mother of three, migrated to the United States in 1990. Lived and practiced nursing in Brooklyn, New York for 11 years, and moved to McAllen, Texas in 2002. I have worked in different areas of nursing, to include intensive care unit, medical, rehab, pediatric nursing, and eventually landed a job as a Risk Management coordinator at a prestigious hospital in McAllen, Texas. I pursued masters in nursing- family nurse practitioner at Walden University Online Course. During my practicum, I truly enjoyed dealing with the pediatric population. I am looking forward to share my knowledge and experience and be able to contribute to the optimization and maintenance of health of the pediatric population.
