I am a Clinical Nurse Specialist in Psychiatric and Mental Health Nursing with 33 years of experience. I also have had management experience, serving as the Nursing Director for two inpatient (adult psych & child/adolescent psych) units and two outpatient (adult & child/adolescent) units in an acute care hospital setting.
In my teaching experience, I have taught at various universities in various nursing programs (BSN, ADN, RN-BSN) in many different courses throughout the years. I have over 22 years of teaching experience working with traditional and non-traditional nursing students. I have been at the Trumbull campus for over 12 years now. I am most proud of winning the "Outstanding Teaching Award" in 2012, which was from all eight campuses at Kent State University.
