the nurse behind Nursing the System.
I'm an ER nurse supervisor + grad student + systems thinker +
enneagram 8 + educator + bookworm.
I love space movies, running in the rain, and traveling the world.
When people ask me what I do, the answer is: it’s complicated.
So to simplify:
I call myself a Systems Nurse.
While getting my Bachelor’s in Sociology + Anthropology, I unexpectedly fell in love with Nursing.
Of all the social systems I studied, US healthcare fascinated me the most. It was so complex and so messy, and I wanted in. Nursing—with its feminist history + unique systems orientation to the health of people and communities—was my way in. A Masters and (almost) a Doctorate in Nursing later, I haven’t looked back.
Now, I help nurses see the healthcare Big Picture - and give them the tools they need to lead healthcare system change.
Curiosity & Growth are at the core of Nursing the System. I attract nurses dedicated to the pursuit of knowledge and eager to expand and deepen their worldview, values central to being Systems Thinkers.
Over the last few years, I’ve sought to share how the power of systems thinking and stepping into the role of change maker will transform nurses' careers - and our healthcare system.
Get to know me better!
