I have over 20 years of nursing experience, 7 years as a clinical scholar, 4 years as a unit educator. As a Regis graduate from the accelerated BSN program and MSN education program, I utilize and practice at the bedside and the classroom with the Jesuit values front and center. I enjoy challenging students to dig deeper and to own their own learning. I am passionate about developing students to be the best nurses they can be. I enjoy teaching fundamentals to capstone, which provide me the ability to work with students at different levels of their nursing education. I also work closely with ranked, clinical, and lab faculty to maximize the students’ learning in the classroom, clinical rotation and skills and sim lab. I am available to both current and previous students to help them along their nursing education. I am well versed on the newest technology used in practice, and bring that knowledge to students.
