Personal Interests:

I moved to Portland to be a full-time student. I became interested in OHSU's PhD program after using some research from nursing leaders here during my Master's program. I would really like to blend a career of teaching undergraduate nursing students with simulation as a clinical teaching strategy with nursing education research following graduation. My husband and I live on the South Waterfront near OHSU. We enjoy cooking together and exploring Portland!
