About

I am a board-certified Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner. I started my medical journey from the University of St. Francis, Joliet IL, where I obtained a bachelorette of science in Nursing. I practiced as a Registered Nurse for three years focusing on behavioral/mental health. I gained a vast knowledge in mental health disorders and Emergency medicine before advancing my career as an Advanced Practice Nurse with a specialty in psychiatric. My practicum/residency experiences were in an inpatient/outpatient setting, and Telehealth.
I did my residency at UChicago (Ingalls Memorial Health), Amita Health/Alexian Brothers, Family Christian Health Center, and Alay Health Team in WI. I have a combination of over 8 years' experience in behavioral/mental health. I enjoy practicing the full scope of behavioral/mental health medicine and work well with patients and family members.
I was born and raised in West Africa, Ghana and Nigeria before moving to the United States for my education in health care. My interest in mental health commence in West Africa, Nigeria, due to primitive/historical belief of mental disorders and the quality-of-care render to individuals with the disorders.
