Welcome to Region 1
Welcome to our Region 1 webpage. Region 1 is a very active group of professional nurses. We enjoy supporting continuing education endeavors and encouraging student involvement. Throughout the year, we participate in various volunteer opportunities within our 4 counties (Morris, Sussex, Warren, and Passaic). Visit our event calendar frequently for upcoming opportunities to give back to our community. Our meetings are held in each county on a rotating basis. I speak on behalf of our Board of Directors when I voice that we welcome your attendance at any of our meetings.
To share a little about myself….. I have been a health care provider for over 25 years and began my career in the emergency department and transitioned to a position in the pharmaceutical industry as a Medical Information Consultant.
More recently I have held positions as an Adult Nurse practitioner and a Forensic Nurse Examiner.
I enjoy being active in many professional organizations including the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners, American College Health Association, New Jersey College Health Association, was inducted into Sigma Theta Tau-the International Honor Society for Nurses and was a former board member of the Mid-Atlantic College Health Association. I am passionate about health and wellness and approach clinical care holistically for each patient. I enjoy working collaboratively with patients to help them identify and meet their goals. When not working, I enjoy traveling, hiking, being outdoors and spending time with my family and dog.
I look forward to meeting you at at our next Region 1 meeting.

Region 1 nurses march in the Hackettstown St. Patrick’s Day parade on Sunday, March 13th. Under the leadership of Lauren Krause, Warren County Coordinator, NJSNA Region 1 participated in the parade. It was so much fun, despite the frigid temps. Special thanks to Peggy and Rich Daingerfield, Daria Napierkowski and sweet pup Rusty, and Linda Katstra from Warren County School Nurses Association for braving the bitter cold (26 degrees, windchill 19) and snow flurries this afternoon.
And it was wonderful marching again after 2 years cancellation during covid.
Region 1 celebrated our nursing excellence at the Institute for Nursing C.A.R.E.S. Awards Gala held on April 8th, 2021.
