Biography

I am a nursing educator who has taught nursing for over 25 years. I love what I do and what I teach. I enjoy touching the future through my engagement and development of nursing students. I presented my dissertation on Nursing Accreditation across the Nation at the International Sigma Theta Tau conference in Vienna, Austria. It was a rewarding and inspiring experience.
