I became an RN in 1992 and furthered my education and became an Adult-Gero NP in 2000. For the past 16 years, I have worked clinically in Internal Medicine and have experience with skilled and long term care. I have taught at Kent State University since 2007, and for the past year, have been the AGPCNP Concentration Coordinator.

I have been a family nurse practitioner for 16 years. I have worked in a primary care outpatient family practice and the retail clinic setting. I enjoy collaborating with health care providers while working with individuals and families on their health journey. In my role as an FNP clinical preceptor, I found the experience stimulating and rewarding which is how I found my pathway into teaching at the CoN.
