Rhanishia spent the beginning of her nursing journey, serving the Native American population in Arizona. During that time, she worked in family medicine, obstetrics, and Public Health Nursing. Rhanishia worked closely with prenatal women out in the community, helping them to successfully breastfeed and care for their newborns.
