RN, SDC/QAPI of Maine Veterans’ Homes-Machias, Maine

For the past 24 years, I have worked in various settings as a Registered Nurse; I love the diversity that this profession offers!  Just over 4 years ago, I arrived at MVH-Machias, as the QAPI and Staff Development Coordinator.  In my previous job, I had visited the facility many times and I love to tell people that there is a reason I work where I do now.  MVH-Machias is one of the best assisted living facilities in Maine, and now one of the best in the country, as evidenced by winning the prestigious AHCA/NCAL GOLD Quality Award in 2018.  Being part of the quality award journey was a difficult but exciting experience, one of great learning and transformation.    

I have lived most of my life in a tiny community in rural Maine with my husband, sons and their families.  I love my role as an RN but the role of ‘Nana’ to my 4 grandchildren is my favorite.
