Interests

As a nurse educator, my long term post-PhD goal is to be a disability studies scholar who disseminates knowledge from this emerging field within nursing science and promotes its use in nursing education. When I'm not working on my dissertation research, I enjoy hot yoga, riding my bike, golfing, spectating PDX Thorns games, and exploring tide pools at the Oregon coast with my partner and dog.
