In 1994, I graduated from the University of Western Ontario with my BScN. My career began at a private oral surgery office from 1994-2001.

The Urologists at Henry Ford Hospital began working with the daVinci robot in 2001. I was able to be part of the daVinci team.

As part of a dedicated team member, I was able to travel around the world teaching and educating others regarding robotic surgeries. The team traveled to countries such as Greece, Italy, India, Malaysia, France, South Korea and China performing surgeries and educating.
