Rebecca has 4 children with two of them still residing in the home. Her children are very involved with school activities with an extra interest in language and the arts, that keep her and them very busy. She was recently blessed with the arrival of her first granddaughter, who is now 2 years old.

In Rebecca’s 20 years of experience in bedside nursing she has had the opportunity to work in variety of disciplines. She has spent the last 7 years as a Registered Nurse in the Intensive Care Unit and immediately felt that providing this level of care was where she could give the most to her patients. Prior to starting in the clinic she worked with our Pulmonary Physicians at Boone Hospital’s Intensive Care Unit.

Rebecca and her children have several hobbies including biking on the trail, softball, gardening, and collecting art. Her favorite experience is to take her children to enjoy live music or theatre.
