Ann has been a nurse at +Inova Alexandria Hospital since 1988! She started in the Medical-Surgical ICU and now is part of our Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation team.

For the past 16 years she has made a long commute from Fredericksburg, because of the special connections she has with her co-workers and patients - some of whom have been in the program over 20 years!

She shared, "At the end of each work day, I go home feeling great knowing I gave my patients the best care I know how to give. They often thank me and tell me how grateful they are that I come ‘all the way here’ each day to take such good care of them."

Over her career she has worked full-time, part-time and as needed, which allowed her the flexibility of raising her children, experiencing the joy of being a Girl Scout Leader for over 15 years and teaching religious education classes for grades K-8 for the past 9 years. #AlexNursesRock #InovaAlexandriaHospital
