About Me

As director of A&II (Academic and Instructional Innovation) at Samuel Merritt University, I stay current in best practices of teaching and learning in all modalities. As a long-time teacher of literature, I invite nursing students to explore compassion in multiple domains and then apply their findings to their own journey to nursing practice. 


I combine my background in literature studies with my studies of online and hybrid education to create engaging GenEd courses in the BSN program.
