She has dedicated much of her nursing career to working with individuals with neurological concerns, which was inspired prior to attending nursing school. “I worked as a summer camp counselor for an organization serving individuals with developmental disabilities when I was 17 years old,” Dr. Alberts remembers. “I felt a great connection to the community of campers and other staff that summer and many summers following. I still remain connected to that organization today. Those experiences are the foundation of my career path.”
