I was born in the Philippines and moved to NYC at age 3. I have been a Registered Nurse for 17 years working mostly in critical care. I was an Army Nurse Corp Officer for 10 years with 2 deployments to Iraq. After completing my Master's Degree in Nursing Informatics, I began working for the military and DHA (Defense Health Agency) implementing and sustaining Secure Messaging, Nurse Advice Line, Behavioral Health Data Portal (BHDP) to all Military Treatment Facilities throughout the world.

My husband is also Retired Army and we have 4 children (Jason, Sean, Brandon, and Emily).
