Current Focus

"Currently I am full time Associate Clinical Faculty for the School of Nursing. I am also the Medical/Nursing Director for Camp Good Days and Special Times. I spent almost 20 years as a PNP in Pediatric Hematology/Oncology then worked as PNP in Pediatric Palliative Care for about 7 years before joining the SON part-time initially then became full time. I love teaching and watching students finally connect when you are teaching them. I hope they walk away with an appreciation for caring for children and their families."
