Corinne enjoys creative writing, photography, and the occasional camping trip in her few spare moments. She is a member of the American Nurses Association, the Oncology Nursing Society, the Hospice and Palliative Nurses Association, and Sigma Theta Tau. She is the current President of the American Nurses Association\California.
Corinne works as a bedside nurse on a progressive care oncology unit for Sharp Chula Vista Medical Center in southern San Diego. As a certified hospice and palliative nurse, she is able to see the substantial need for a public health nurse at the national level, as end-of-life care is a delicate subject that needs to have heightened awareness and education. A supporter of the National Nurse Act of 2015, Corinne hopes that any public health matter will be greatly advocated for by health care leaders within the government system. While end-of-life care is not necessarily that of illness prevention, Corinne believes that improved comfort and symptom relief fits under the umbrella of health promotion. She is completing her Masters in Nursing with a focus on nursing education, and is working diligently on a program to educate new hire nurses on end-of-life care for patients and their family members.
