Personal Interests

My career goal is to be a nursing educator and researcher in academia. I moved to Portlnad in 2008; I love the Pacific NW and plan to stay here indefinitely. I have worked and volunteered while living overseas and enjoy international traveling and learning. In my free time I am active as a member and volunteer with the Mazamas mountaineering organization, am a volunteer coordinator for grounds care at a disadvantaged elementary school in NE Portland and enjoy various hobbies like cider-brewing, boardgaming, and fitness training.
