Director of Nursing
Theresa believes that being a Director of Nursing means that she enforces the policy and procedures that the company has put forth. She believes that nurses are advocates for their patients and that every nurse should render good quality patient care in a non-judgmental way. Through her work Theresa wants to bring about awareness that addiction is not a choice but a disease and should be treated as such. Theresa has recently begun to teach staff, patients, and their families about the use of Narcan. She started doing this about a year ago through personal appearances and an active participant in overdose awareness week in Las Vegas, NV. She has seen many of her friends and family fall victim to this disease and has decided to dedicate her life to helping others heal. Theresa works along with her husband at their local church doing a health fair every year for the last three years to bring awareness to the community about preventative measures in healthcare. The fair includes free blood pressure and glucose readings with healthy life style changes. Theresa holds an Associate degree in nursing from College of Southern Nevada, a Bachelor of Science degree in nursing from Aspen University, and pursing her Master’s degree in Leadership and Management in Nursing at Aspen university. She has over 15 years nursing experience both in hospital and rehab settings. She has been a Director of Nursing for over ten years both in hospice and addiction.
