As a medical provider and caregiver, and the newest State Captain from Tennessee, I hope to accomplish increasing awareness and helping as many COPD patients as possible.
As a COPD advocate, I have spoken to my family and friends about COPD, I have written about COPD in a newspaper, magazine, or other publication, and have joined COPD360social.
As a State Captain, I am interested in connecting others in the COPD community to the resources available so they can live healthier, fuller lives, and raising awareness by participating in health fairs and community events. I would also like to work with state, local, and national officials to improve COPD policy, and to write about COPD to share my story and help raise awareness.
My proudest COPD moment has been presenting my COPD project to the VA.
My inspiration to share is, “Just breathe”
More about me, “I am an RN and work for the VA. My greatest hope is to give all COPD patients the best possible lives for as long as possible”
