I was born in Lucca, Italy and grew up between Florence, Italy & Brussels, Belgium. I spent my childhood living in Belgium and Italy, and often traveled from England to North Africa. I attended The Brussels State Technical School for Electrical Engineering, and lived in Belgium till the end of 1989.
I received my Nursing Degree from Edison College, and my Master of Health Care Administration from National-Louis University, Chicago.
I have more than 10 years of diverse leadership experience as a clinical/administrative manager, educator and perioperative nursing while promoting professional healthcare delivery, supported by progressive clinical coaching, and clinical/administrative staff development.
