I have long been fascinated by the mind and loved helping those with struggles with their mental health. I initially studied psychology, obtaining my bachelor’s degree in that field. However, I decided to change to nursing, figuring I would be able to better care for my family. In 2015, I joined the Behavioral Health Unit at Canyon Vista Medical Center, marrying my two fields. In 2016, I began pursuing further nursing education with the goal to become a Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner. In 2017, I became the director of the Behavioral Health Unit. In 2020, I completed my education, and in 2021, I obtained my license as an NP. In late 2021, I joined Chiricahua Community Health Centers, Inc.
More important than my career is my family. I love my wife and my five children more than anything else.
