Nurse Care Manager

Staff Details

Title: Nurse Care Manager
Pronouns: she-Her-Hers
Phone: 202.939.7649

I first discovered Whitman-Walker Health when a good friend of mine was sick with AIDS and had no medical care. We got her into Whitman-Walker, where she was able to get her HIV under control and also received support to address other chronic health conditions. I didn�t imagine that years later I would be working as a nurse at this incredible organization! I grew up in Los Angeles, CA, and have lived in DC since 2001. Following a decade of youth mentoring, I went back to school and became a Registered Nurse through Georgetown University’s accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing program, finishing in 2012. I started working at the clinic in Research in 2014, and switched over to medical case management in 2016. Outside the clinic, I enjoy biking, kayaking, escape rooms, and organizing fun gatherings. I lived in Mexico and Costa Rica in college and speak Spanish. It is a privilege to work at this diverse, inclusive, progressive organization and to help individuals overcome their barriers to health and wellness.
