My professional career spans over 35 years, including community nursing practice, consultation to community health care agencies, and academia.  Since 2004 I've been at Regis University and have been Director of the RN-BSN and MS Programs since 2011. Leading from the theory of Servant-Leadership, my aim is to empower others to become all they aspire to through the powerful avenue of being a servant to those they lead. My teaching philosophy is one of collaborative learning, influencing learners to know how to think deeply and logically while searching extant evidence to discern solutions. I have written and presented locally and nationally on my research interests which include issues of the elderly and underserved populations the learning strategy, Ignatian Pedagogy, and Ignatian values.
