Tate originally joined the Alsana team because she knew most of the employees and wanted to be part of a strong team. As a staff nurse, she enjoys being able to combine her technical nursing skills in a field she is very passionate about, as well as being directly involved with clients and their treatment plans.
She has experience in the hospital setting as well as public health. Prior to Alsana, her past nursing experience was in mental health, oncology, cardiology, and school nursing. Most recently, Tate served as a staff nurse and nurse manager for a national residential program and coordinator for a partial hospitalization program for eating disorders. Tate received her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Troy University.
She is a member of NAMI and in the process of starting up new support groups in her area. Tate originally entered the field of nursing because she enjoyed being around older people, a thought that makes her laugh, but appreciative for the amazing journey of her nursing career.
