What draws you to the field of nursing?

Providing health care for children requires a variety of skills and wide knowledge base that I find challenging and rewarding.

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

I have spent my professional life trying to improve the lives of children and their families. Each child is a special and precious child of God, no matter their cultural or socioeconomic background. Influencing future members of the health care team to approach each child in this manner is a very important part of teaching.
