As an Adult Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner who has also earned a Doctor of Nursing Practice degree from Vanderbilt University School of Nursing, I have over 20 years of experience in medical/surgical, intensive care, emergency care, orthopaedics, vascular medicine and complex wound management. My education and experience allow me to provide well informed evidence based opinions in medical malpractice. I have two wound care certifications and currently own and operate a multi-state nurse practitioner wound care consulting company for acute and post-acute settings called Integumetrix (www.integumetrix.com). I am an expert in the field of wound management and pressure injury causation and evolution, and primarily specialize in wound care cases, but also consider review of other cases within my experience base on a case-to-case basis. I have the education, expertise and clinical background to give a more comprehensive expert opinion on medical matters than a registered nurse or physician consultant who does not specialize in wound management. Contact me today to discuss how I can assist on your case.
