The colorful, irrepressible Gale R. Decker and her twin sister were pre-ordained to be nurses. She earned her Associate Degree in Nursing in 1979 from Polk Community College. Four decades later as a registered nurse, she is still passionate about her profession.
Ms. Decker is licensed to practice in both Florida and Pennsylvania. A Board Certified Legal Nurse Consultant (BCLNC) since 2006, she joined McCumber Daniels in November 2001 and has been a great asset from Day One. Her expertise includes acute hospital care in medical/surgical nursing, neurological/neurosurgical nursing, telemetry, and cardiac care.
In addition, Ms. Decker has worked in hospice care and LTC/geriatrics. She has extensive experience in Home Health Care where she started as a field nurse, later working as an Administrator of a Medicare agency for five years. Prior to that, she was a Department Director in medical-surgical/telemetry for more than seven years and worked as a Unit Director in long-term care.
In her spare time, Ms. Decker enjoys fishing and riding motorcycles. As members of the American Legion, she and her husband ride with the vets and the Legion’s Bike Club. The couple also owns an outdoor gear company.
