Shira Charpentier, BSN-RN, PHN, FCN
Shira graduated with her BSN-RN degree from the University of Rochester and has been active in the field since 2001. She has previous experience working with substance abuse, mental health, foster care, and both geriatric and pediatric patients. She has most recently worked as the Director of Nursing for Options Residential and as a Case Manager for Brightstar Care. She considers her greatest strength to be her dedication, as a nurse, to caring about the physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being of each person she works with. She was inspired to work in this field because she has witnessed the effects of drugs and alcohol on friends and family and wants to help in making a difference in the lives of others.
