Personal Statement
Teaching in the profession I love is overwhelmingly the most rewarding of my career!  Aligning education with real-world clinical practice, building safe, ethically strong, professional, and resilience nurses is a privileged role I feel very blessed to do in the ever-changing healthcare environment. Caring student-faculty relationships ultimately build caring relationships with patients and are linked to improved patient outcomes, job satisfaction for nurses, critical to healthcare and the nursing profession.  

Outside of teaching, I enjoy the Nashville music scene with my husband.  We have two grown daughters who presently live in Georgia and Washington DC.  I am blessed with a large farm family in Wisconsin and always enjoy family time.  Walking exercise, gardening, reading, and painting old furniture are my favorite hobbies.
