Kimberly’s 30+ years of nursing experience and perfected skills focused in rehabilitation nursing and 20+ years of workers’ compensation case management set her services apart from other case management companies. Kimberly’s unique and individualized perspective originates from her experience as a nurse/nurse case manager in the workers’ compensation industry on all sides: Insured/Employer, Provider and Carrier.
Kimberly served the George Washington University as a clinical nurse on the neurosurgery unit and later worked directly for the Chairman of Neurosurgery at George Washington University. Through this experience, Kimberly functioned on the provider’s side of treating and coordinating care for persons with catastrophic traumatic and non-traumatic brain and spinal injuries. Kimberly also gained insight working as an occupational health nurse for a large health system in Northern Virginia, where she served on the insured’s side of workers’ compensation claims. Kimberly has served the workers compensation industry as a nurse case manager for the past 20 years for national and regional case management companies, as well as directly with claims staff for a major international insurance carrier.
Kimberly’s direct clinical nursing experience includes care of patients with acute traumatic and non-traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, post-operative spinal and brain surgery at George Washington University in Washington, D.C., as well as acute neuro-rehabilitation at Mount Vernon Hospital in Alexandria, VA. Other clinical experience which has served as a firm foundation for Kimberly’s case management practice includes home care nursing and discharge planning at long-term acute care hospitals.
