My road in life took a while to figure out.
I was an athlete in high school and college—experiencing my own injuries and subsequent operations piqued my interest in the medical field.
I got a few Division I offers to play baseball in college but tore my ACL before I could play my senior year of high school, so I went to a junior college instead.
I tore my ACL again and decided it was time to hang up my cleats and figure out what else I wanted to do.
My wife and I decided to pursue nursing together—we went through a junior college plan and I’ve since transitioned into a baccalaureate level nurse.
I currently work as a spine and total joint replacement navigator, teaching patients about the surgery and recovery processes, and acting as a resource for patients during their recovery.

Day to Day

I meet patients prior to having surgery to teach about the entire surgery and recovery process. I round on post-surgical patients to promote successful recoveries. I remain as a resource to patients after discharging from the hospital in the event any questions or concerns arise during their recovery period.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for college students

I'd recommend pursuing educational goals uninterrupted. If a bachelor's degree in nursing is the ultimate goal, I would recommend attending a baccalaureate nursing program opposed to an ADN program and completing bridged RN-BSN coursework.
