About Me

I have enjoyed both the art and science of nursing through many avenues of healing capacities. Whether at the bedside with highly technical expertise, teaching at various college campuses, or managing clinical educational development, caring has always been the essence of my practice. I have been very fortunate to experience that special quality with colleagues around the world and unity in providing a healing environment to those we touch.


My professional career has been based in acute care nursing, health program development, and nursing education. My clinical specialty is advanced practice of geriatrics.
