Election Statement: ARN is a wonderful organization that has provided me with the opportunity to grow as a professional rehabilitation nurse. As a member of ARN for almost thirty years, I have had the opportunity to work on the state level as a chapter member, board member, treasurer, and president. On the national level I have served as a board member for two terms, one as the Region 3 Director and one as a Director at Large. I had the pleasure of serving as Secretary/Treasurer for three years, ended in 2018.

I have witnessed firsthand the impact ARN has had on healthcare, and I am committed to work to help ARN achieve its strategic vision.

I will continue to utilize my energy and leadership skills to kelp ensure ARN is the recognized leader in healthcare change and reform.

Election Statement: ARN’s strategic vision focusing on improving healthcare delivery through integration of rehabilitation nursing concepts are key to successful patient transition across the continuum of care. As a nurse scientist, actively involved in the nursing profession and associated organizations, I can share my knowledge and expertise of these concepts to advance the art and science of rehabilitation nursing. I have used the concepts to guide quality improvement, evidence-based practice projects, research investigations, and professional nursing organizations. My scientific thinking is an asset when addressing processes, structures, and outcomes.

Election Statement: I have practiced as a bedside and advance practice nurse for 24 years where I have devoted my career to the advancement of rehabilitation nursing. I mentor staff nurses to become active critical thinkers and to incorporate evidence based practice into their daily care. I promote staff development through nurse residency programming, certification, clinical ladder, and evidence based projects that lead to presentations. I have been fortunate to be involved in a strong local chapter and hope to bring strategies to make our national professional organization stronger. I have strong qualifications to be on the board as evidenced by my contributions in building my local chapter, promoting ARN legislation at the Ohio Statehouse, and encouraging young rehabilitation nursing professionals to be involved. I look forward to the opportunity to make a difference at the national level and give back to the organization that helped me develop into a clinical expert.

Election Statement: In the last 12 years as a registered nurse, I have been working in 3 difference countries (2 different continents). These three different realities have given me a strong knowledge about nursing rehabilitation and leadership around the world. As an ARN member I’m expecting to raise the ARN standards to an international level and minimize the gaps in all the nursing rehabilitation areas. This fact is emerging nowadays as our population and healthcare staff is getting more internationalized.

Having the experience of working with different nationalities and cultures gives me the know-how knowledge to adjust our targets/responsibilities/tasks to our community.

Election Statement: ARN needs strong leaders to guide the association through changes in the healthcare landscape that challenge the viability and value of the services that Rehab nurses can provide.
