I am a board-certified registered nurse with a background in critical care that has been working in the informatics field for seven years in an acute care setting. I am working as an Epic Inpatient Clinical Documentation Analyst II at Garnet Health. I am certified in EpicCare Inpatient Clinical Documentation and Inpatient Rehab. My clinical background includes working in step-down unit, cardiac cath lab recovery, ICU, CCU, ED, and Observation unit. The floating experience strengthened my understanding of the different workflows and increased my networking. These skills facilitated my transition into the Clinical Informatics Specialist role. In the informatics role I explored EHR build, optimization, maintenance, and support. I have experience in restructuring the nursing orientation program and including informatics competency in the training. I developed training sessions and materials. In addition, I provided technical and application support for Meditech Database Management System and Epic. Additional responsibilities included the management and support of the implementation of new projects in the organization such as Teletracking, Zynx evidence-based care plans and order sets. As a nurse in a Magnet organization, I was a member of the shared governance nurse experience council. As a member of ANIA, I saw the need for a chapter in the NY Tristate region and with a team of dedicated informatics professional have taken the steps to create the NY Tristate Chapter and became the founding Chapter President. I currently serve the chapter as the education coordinator. In my spare time I love CrossFit, fishing, reading, Netflix, and the beach. I am drawn to holistic nurse and have my Reiki Level I certification.
