Hesston College Nursing faculty since 1973.
The most rewarding part of teaching nursing is to know that I've had a part in helping individuals meet their goals of becoming nurses. I cherish my relationships with nursing students--they are some of the most wonderful persons I've ever met! It brings me joy and satisfaction to see students develop healing skills and show compassion in caring for clients.
