“My most favorite thing about direct patient care was when I worked in the acute care setting. I enjoyed interacting with the patient and family as a unit to plan out the patient’s care with everyone who would be involved in making sure health care goals were met. This is also my favorite thing about what I do now as a Care Coordinator for the Home Tele-Health Program.”

She is also a member of the scrap book committee for the Home Tele-Health Program, National Nurses United, and Chi Eta Phi Sorority Inc.

A veteran under her care expressed his gratitude to Yvette and wrote: “I have been a patient in the Telehealth program for 2 years now. When I first started, my health was a mess. My blood sugar, blood pressure, and pain level were all out of control. With the help of Yvette, my health has improved a great deal. She takes care of me like I am her only patient but I know that is not true. She is always there when I need advice, checks up on me, discusses the numbers I call in, makes sure I have all my medicine, and also taking it as scheduled. When I need advice, Nurse Yvette is more than helpful. One thing I really like is being able to talk about all of my health problems. Also, my doctor is contacted when I need help with a problem. She always asks me how I am feeling that day. I just want to say Yvette is the best and I love her! I thank the VA for this program and I encourage every veteran to participate in the program. Thank you Yvette!”
