As an educator, I have taught several courses in the undergraduate and graduate nursing programs. My current responsibilities include coordination of the Nursing Administration and Health Systems Leadership concentration in the MSN program.

As a nurse researcher, my interest is in nursing presence in leadership and in online education. My previous mixed methods research explored nursing faculty perceptions of experiences, strategies and intensity while teaching in the online environment. Building on this work, I am interested in evaluating how relationships in nursing education and practice influence both learning and practice related outcomes. Current studies focus on understanding teaching effectiveness in the online environment and the effectiveness of nurses serving on governing boards and the experiences that contribute to their effectiveness.
