A Maine native, Tina obtained her BA in Psychology from the University of Maine at Orono, and spent time working with a community action program as a community outreach educator. Working as an educator and advocate for women who experienced trauma sparked an interest in health and healing. She participated in an integrative health coach training through Duke University, and then earned her BS in Nursing at the University of Southern Maine’s accelerated program. She began working at Maine Medical Center’s inpatient Oncology Unit and soon after pursued her Master’s of Science in Nursing with a goal of working in an oncology setting. Tina is interested in partnering with patients for health promotion before, during, and after cancer treatment.
She lives with her family in southern Maine, where they enjoy spending time outside all year long, especially at the beach!
