Me & Newton Legal Nurse Consulting
Newton Legal Nurse Consulting strives to make the medical record become your strongest witness. I work with attorneys to bridge the gap between the legal and medical worlds in ways no one else can. I am a Certified Legal Nurse Consultant (CLNC) as well as Registered Nurse specializing in legal cases pertaining to personal injury, worker’s compensation, medical malpractice, toxic tort, and a variety of other health, injury, and illness cases.
My company can deliver the cost-effective medical expertise you need to uncover crucial facts in the medical record that can be the difference between winning or losing your case. Every medical record is mired down in thousands of tedious bits of information. You need a medical insider on your litigation team to sort through the medical records and identify what is relevant to your case. For the best outcome, attorneys need mastery of both the medical and the nursing aspects in order to achieve optimally successful outcomes. At Newton Legal Nurse Consulting, I put that mastery to work for your legal practice.
I’m a San Diego native and graduate of University of California, San Diego and San Francisco State University with a Masters and Clinical Nurse Specialty in Women’s Health. I have two national certifications; one from Emory University in Wound and Ostomy care and the other as a Legal Nurse Consultant. In almost 20 years of nursing experience, I’ve worked in multiple areas spanning from medical-surgical to elder care, women’s health, neonatal care, academic instruction, safe patient movement, pressure injury prevention, corporate product review, to purchasing and hospital leadership. My experience has allowed me to become very familiar with all levels of the inner workings of the hospital. As an expert in the prevention and treatment of wound and pressure injuries, I’ve authored several policies, protocols, guidelines and Standards of Care.
I’m passionate about medical-legal matters. I take pride in empowering attorneys and their clients with my level of knowledge in the nursing and medical fields to help win health, illness and injury cases.
