I am nurse researcher who has completed two Postdoctoral Fellowships at Ohio State University and Duke University.
My research area includes child health specific asthma and symptom self-management, healthcare provider, caregiver and child communication, social environment and outcome measures related managing children’s chronic illness. My work include several grants and most recent relates to Children’s Illness Representation (CIR-C) and a Community-Based Participatory Research. Current, publications include cultural relevance with managing chronic illness of children in a Head Start program.
I am a manuscript and book chapter reviewer. I have presented at International and local conferences. I teach courses in the Master's and Ph.D. programs. Clinically, I am an active Pediatric and Family Nurse Practitioner. The greatest and most enjoyable part of my profession is sharing and passing the torch to the next generation nurse scientist.
