I am an acute and critical care Clinical Nurse Specialist with 14 years of advance practice experience. I earned my BSN ('02) and MSN ('06) from Kent State University. I also hold certification as a neuroscience registered nurse and have completed a fellowship as an advanced neurovascular practitioner. This year I also begin working on certification as an adult gerontology Nurse Practitioner.
I began teaching formally with the College of Nursing in the fall of 2016, began coordinating the advanced pharmacology course in the spring of 2017, and assumed the interim concentration coordinator role for the Acute Care Nurse Practitioner Program in the fall of 2019.
My advanced practice career has mostly centered around neurology/neurosurgery, neurocritical care, trauma, and general critical care. My areas of interest have neurodegenerative disease, stroke, and traumatic brain injury, including concussion. Currently I practice in outpatient neurology.
I live in Cuyahoga Falls with my nearly 6-year-old son, 3-year-old daughter, and puppy.
