Seven years of experience as a hospital RN has given me an extensive knowledge of the nursing process, which has greatly benefited me in the design work I have done in Cerner’s Millennium applications.  Having been part of West CoastHospital’s Cerner build from the ground up, I have acquired an in-depth knowledge of Cerner applications and their interdependencies.  I am a strong communicator, which has helped me to work seamlessly with both nursing and IT staff during the design and build process with Cerner Millennium at CWH.  I work well with others, and yet am very self-motivated and focused when working alone.  I have strong troubleshooting skills, enabling me to quickly interpret statements from end users to determine the source of their problem; and whether a problem is workflow or system related, I am consistently able to come up with an effective solution, be it educational or corrective.
