Personal Note
I am enormously blessed to have the privilege of blending my shared passion for nursing and teaching in my role as nursing faculty. I strive to conceptualize an educational experience that stems from my own favorable experiences as a nursing student here at Belmont, first graduating in 1985 and then again in 2001.

My faith is the foundation by which I live my life. I am humbled by the grace and mercy God has extended to me for as long as I have lived. My greatest blessings are my husband, daughter and son. Spending time with them is my favorite thing to do! Beyond that, I enjoy reading, music, and playing in the dirt.
