I am a Registered Nurse with 23 years of experience. I am a Kent State alum (x4 degrees!) and College of Nursing Professor and Course Coordinator. I am also the Faculty Advisor for Kent State University's Student Nurses' Association. My clinical background is in Obstetrics. I have worked in the labor and delivery, high risk perinatal, mother/ baby, reproductive endocrinology, infertility, outpatient fetal evaluation, and in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit settings. Prior to teaching, I worked in hospital administration. I lobby and advocate for health care policy issues and led nurses as a hospital administrator. I have taught a variety of courses. I have served as an American Delegate to China to study that country’s education and healthcare systems and am currently an Education Leadership Policy Fellow. My research area of interest is the role of the nurse in assessing, identifying, and providing interventions for victims of human trafficking. Kent State is home to me. I have graduated from KSU four times and met my husband here 26 years ago. I owe everything to KSU and am privileged to be faculty here.
