Director of Nursing
Tina became Walker Methodist’s Director of Nursing in April 2016. She had previously held the position from 2000-2004, and Walker Methodist is glad to have her back. As Director of Nursing, Tina’s main responsibility is overseeing the nursing department. Overseeing means providing leadership and mentorship to individuals within her department, staying compliant with nursing regulations, and remaining competitive within the healthcare industry.
Within the healthcare industry, Tina is known as someone with integrity and passion for the people she serves. She is especially skilled in team development and leadership, which is an important skill set for a Director of Nursing. Tina loves being part of an industry that’s constantly rising to meet new challenges while staying focused on human service.
She hopes her legacy is one of instilling the passion of senior care and service through nursing onto others. Along the way, she’s thankful to play a part in developing nurses and nursing assistants as they find their career path in senior care.
When she’s not working, Tina spends time with her family. She and her wonderful husband, Roger, take drives throughout the city and make day trips to the many small towns nearby. She has one adult daughter, Andrea, who’s currently deciding what her career path will be. In her personal and professional life, Tina loves to laugh. And she loves when others laugh too.
