My passion is to engage and encourage learning at all levels of education. I hope to assist each student in their endeavor of excellence in scholarship and practice. My background as a clinical educator prior to entering academia has ignited my passion mentoring and guiding others in their professional growth in nursing and allied health.
In my personal life I enjoy spending time with my spouse and three teenage children. We enjoy amusement parks and visiting historical sites. In my quiet time, I enjoy reading memoirs, biographies, and an occasional historical fiction novel.
