I have had the honor and pleasure of teaching with OHSU School of Nursing since 2008. I currently teach in the undergraduate program on the Ashland campus. My area of expertise is population health and nursing leadership. I am the project co-manager for the Interprofessional Care Access Network (I-CAN). I-CAN is a nurse-led, community-based interprofessional health care delivery and educational program that addresses the Triple Aim for vulnerable populations in urban neighborhoods and rural communities in Oregon.

In 2013, I embarked on the PhD journey with the University of Northern Colorado. My dissertation explores emancipatory knowing and service learning in undergraduate clinical nursing education and is titled Expressions of Emanciptory Knowing in Undergraduate Nursing Service-Learning.
