Current Focus

My role with SON:

I'm delighted to be with the School of Nursing where I get the chance to work with students on writing, with faculty and staff on issues related to institutional effectiveness, and with faculty on instructional design projects. My goal is to help improve the manifold ways that healthcare professionals communicate with patients and their loved ones.
