What draws you to the field of nursing?

Nursing is a natural extension of who I am. I chose nursing because of the care and compassion involved in nursing, it is truly a calling.

What about teaching energizes you?

I love working with students who are excited to learn and I find that students continue to push me learn more and understand concepts more deeply.

How has your background and educational experience shaped you as a teacher?

I received my undergraduate degree as a “traditional age” student right out of high school and later went back for my graduate degree online while I worked full time and had a family. These educational experiences help me relate to almost any student who walks through the door. Time and stress management are key to being a successful nurse and I hope each of my students can learn not only how to care for their patients holistically, but also care for themselves.
