Welcome to SistaRN's page, where we're all about raising awareness about the issues that are harming our communities, specifically urban and inner cities. As a registered nurse who grew up in these environments, I have a unique perspective on the barriers and social determinants that can impact health and well-being.

My background, training and education in Emergency Department Leadership have given me the tools to think outside of the box in engaging our community for better health and wealth. As Tupac said, "I'm not saying I'm gonna change the world, but I guarantee that I will spark the brain that will change the world." This quote embodies my passion and purpose in serving and making our communities better.
