Vicky attended the University of Maine, System for business management. Several years later graduated from Catonsville Community College with my nursing degree. I began working on a general medical floor at a teaching hospital. I then returned to the academic world to begin advancing my degree for CRNP. The flexibility in the hospital schedule allowed me to be home with my children a great deal of time and continue my education to advance my degree to a masters level. My nursing career over the last twenty years includes woman's health, pulmonary and cardiovascular medicine and Forensic's. The experience of working in specialty medicine laid the foundation for me to build upon in the practice of Primary Care Medicine. I have been practicing for more than 10 years in both hospital and outpatient settings as well as alternative therapies.
