Back to faculty & staff listing


I have had a passion for nursing for as far back as I can remember. Being assigned my first sterile dressing change in nursing school had me "hooked". My main goals in regard to teaching, are to lead by example for my students to care for patients with a caring attitude and a strong knowledge and skill background. There is nothing like seeing a student's face light up when they realize they have just experienced a "connecting of the dots" in clinical to what they have been learning in class!

Education
