I am an experienced forensic nurse examiner and have done cases relating to domestic violence, sexual assault and elder abuse in the state of California. I've consulted nationally and internationally, for the Undersecretary of Health (Veterans Administration) and for the region of Novgorod, Russia (300,000 people)in a forensic capacity. I can answer question having to do with forensic nursing, operating room nursing (scrub & circulate), intensive care and aeromedical flight nursing. I also have vast military nursing experience in peace time and war time and have over 18 years in VA Hospital experience. I have lectured on forensic awareness, domestic violence and sexual assault. I have experience as a nurse manager and preceptor. I have developed new grad programs for ICU and managed them successfully. I have been a patient advocate & consultant, answering questions in plain English, to unravel and gap the patient-doctor relationship and the mystery of the medical world "lingo".

I hope to be solicited to join a homicide task force and get forensic nurse examiners in the forefront of the homicide investigative team to rule out domestic violence and sexual assaults in homicides.
Forensic Nursing - closing the gap between the medical, legal and law enforcement genres - one case at a time
The national efforts to close the gap on perpetrators of crimes having to do with sexual assault, homicide and domestic violence is growing by leaps and bounds. CODIS is instrumental in this as well as the states communicating with each other about standards of practice.
