I have a masters of Science in Nursing and my profession is as a Nurse Practitioner in the field of cardiac surgery.  I have been writing poetry for as long as I can remember, delving seriously into the work of it in the past ten years.  I minored in English, and have been continuing my education by studying the work of others, attending many workshops and classes.  I have  worked with tutors to learn the art of reading my poetry aloud.   I have become enmeshed in the world of the written and spoken word in Loveland, Colorado.
In 2011 I started the Artists’ Collective in Loveland Colorado, and began my foray into collaborative work with area poets, artists and musicians to perform and build installations that include my poetic works.
