With a love of learning and teaching usually comes a love of writing. My debut novel, "Nursing Intuition," was originally born out of my trauma journal. The release and peace that came with sharing my highs and lows in nursing have been amazing. I continue to write about what I know and love, which is the emerging relationship between the mind and the body as it relates to wellness and health.

No one quite like me understands the hilarity, miracles, heartbreak, and pain of a hospital emergency department. After thirteen years of working as a Registered Nurse, I have seen it all. The COVID-19 pandemic was just a chaotic experience to show me that I needed to tell this story. I needed to tell the behind-the-scenes, firsthand nurse's perspective on working in the most 'in-the-trenches' part of healthcare and just how important intuition has become to help me stay the course.
Through my panic, anxiety, and complete exhaustion came so many lessons that needed to be shared. From this place, I discovered just how using my intuition in this field could open so many new avenues for healing, self-discovery and performing my best in this fast-paced world. Nursing Intuition: How to Trust Your Gut, Save Your Sanity and Survive Your Career is a book needed now more than ever. My direct experiences demonstrate how to build resilience, develop your intuition and cultivate your confidence in a field that has gone through its own series of battles. It's a mix of academic-based information from my own training, a touch of spirituality, mixed in with a range of sordid tales pulled right from my own shiftwork.
Bullies, ghosts, aha-moments, intuition, and death - nothing is too taboo for Nursing Intuition and this is exactly the draw of this book. There is nothing quite like it out there and because of this, it is needed now more than ever. I invite you into this side of the ER. This book is your glimpse into this world of shocking trauma, lessons learned, and all the various ways intuition showed me my true power. Using a mix of journaling, reflection, and examples, I will empower the reader to start digging into their own traumas and how they have been coping up until this point.
