I am a Registered Nurse with 34 years of experience. 30 years have been in the operating room, as well as outpatient surgery settings, and an additional 10 years of endoscopic procedural experience. I am a recent graduate of a legal nurse consulting program, and have started my own company called Peak Legal Nurse Consulting in Colorado. Currently, I am working at a local outpatient surgery center per diem. I am also a writer, with two completed books and a blog on WordPress. I look forward to consulting or testifying on any surgical related case for you with an objective opinion, and provide education you may need to study the case from a nursing perspective.
