Biographical Statement
Curriculum Vitae

Current Professional Position

Nurse Practitioner Field Health System

Leadership Experience in the Past Three Years

Lead NP Field Health System 2014- present I will not seek or engage in any other leadership positions for other organizations during my term, should I be elected.

Biggest Challenge Facing Nurse Practitioners and How AANP Can Help

Nationwide FPA. The AANP should continue to support states in their pursuit for FPA. State by state until everyone crosses the finish line. I am particularly interested in leading Mississippians in the battle against Obesity. I hope to use this position to network and foster relationships across the nation that will aide in this fight.

Example of Initiative or Outcome of Leadership

2005-2006 NCOIC (Non-Commissioned Officer in Charge) Shock and Trauma Medical Squad- HHC 1-155th Infantry Iskandariyah, Iraq 2006- ADN Class Representative- Alcorn State University Seven years ago, I spearheaded the creation of a statewide social media group that was successful in networking APRNs across the state of Mississippi. As a result of this we are better able to communicate and come together in the fight for FPA. I am a steadfast advocate for my patients and my profession. I am reliable and easily accessible. I believe a true representative should actively seek the thoughts and opinions of those he represents. I feel I could serve this office effectively.

If Elected, I Propose to Advance the AANP Mission as Follows

Promoting the role of NP throughout my state. Championing the cause of FPA. Advocating for the removal of unnecessary barriers to healthcare access in the poorest state of the nation. On a national level I think it is ridiculous that APRNs can prescribe prosthetic legs for a patient who has lost a limb due to diabetes, but they cannot prescribe diabetic shoes to help prevent that loss in the first place. We, as a nation, are getting it wrong, and it is adversely affecting the health of our Nation.
