About Me: A good portion of my nursing career has been in the hospital, ambulatory care, and home care setting. I served 20 years in the Air Force as an active duty nurse. I thrive on being a nursing leader and helping new nurses excel in their nursing career. I enjoy researching and learning about new trends in health care and discussing them in the on line classroom. I have experience with on line course development and I am currently working on a Doctorate in Health Administration. In my spare time I enjoy being with my family.
