More About Me

My interest in healthcare started at a very young age with my grandmother (who was a field nurse in World War II) teaching me how to care for injuries. She taught me that the mental/emotional wellbeing of the patient was just as important as tending to the physical discomfort. This understanding carried on into my adult life as I explored multiple systems of healing. I initially became licensed as a massage therapist and esthetician where I found that caring for people was my calling. I wanted to do more so I pursued a degree as a registered nurse and subsequently added a bachelor’s degree in psychology. After working in the field for several years, I enrolled in the graduate nursing program at University of South Florida (USF), where I subsequently received my Master of Science in Nursing degree. As a Nurse Practitioner I have been working with addictions, psychiatry, and primary care. I am still committed to my personal and professional growth exploring various approaches for treating patients with both physical and mental health issues including mindfulness, nutrition, personality systems, traditional psychotherapy, and new research into health practices. I continue to strive to further my knowledge and skills and am currently enrolled in the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program at Nova Southeastern University.

A Little Bit About Me

I grew up in Bulgaria but have lived in the US for the past 22 years, 15 of which in Florida. My personal interests include traveling, wilderness survival, and martial arts. I have a slight obsession with cats and currently have three of them. My favorite thing is to spend time with my husband and daughter. I love a good adventure book as well as going on my own adventures.
