BIOGRAPHY

I have been a nurse for over 23 years and a nurse educator for over 12 years. I earned an MSN in Nursing Education in 2008, a DNP in 2009, and a Ph.D. in Nursing Education in 2022. I teach across all nursing programs at Chatham University and serve as the Assistant Program Director for the Nursing Department. I have found a deep interest in nursing education and helping students engage in their education. My future plans are to continue exploring and integrating these areas to make a positive impact on students I have the honor of teaching and the overall world of nursing education.
