I am a holistic practitioner and am committed to mind/body wellness. I believe exercise and good nutrition are essential parts of wellness and integral to self-care. I live in Marin and love to hike, zumba, bike, salsa dance, explore new areas and travel. I am passionate about psychiatric mental health nursing and support reducing stigma and being more open in our conversations about these illnesses. I love to bake and love entertaining in our new home. I am happily married. :)
I have a master's degree and am board certified as a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner since 2004 and a Psychiatric Mental Health Clinical Nurse Specialist since 1995. I received my bachelor's degree in nursing at Rhode Island College and my master's degree from the University of Rhode Island.
Psychiatric mental health nursing, both clinical and didactic. I have interest in teaching in the future in a psychiatric nurse practitioner program.
Interest in research related to education, particularly flipped classroom approaches. Also interested in research related to mental health, particularly adolescents.
