I am a locally grown PhD student having worked at OHSU since 2003. Most of my nursing experience has been the cardiac and surgical ICU where I developed a special interest in cardiac patients, particularly those who are older adults. I live on a walnut and filbert (hazelnut) farm with my husband, twin boys, and our dog and cat. In my “free time,” I enjoy spending time with my family at our cabin, running my dog, traveling (wherever we can go!), and reading for pleasure.
