During her many years in healthcare, she worked at Coral Gables Hospital and Baptist Hospital in Miami, FL as a Respiratory Therapist. She then moved to Palm Beach where she continued to work at JFK Medical Center as a Respiratory Therapist before switching over to Nursing. She has also worked at several hospitals in Palm Beach County. In addition, she taught several classes at Broward College in Mechanical Ventilation and Pulmonology to nurses transitioning to Critical Care.
