Associate Professor at College of Nursing and Health Innovation

I am an Adult and Gerontologic Nurse Practitioner, nurse researcher and faculty member.  I have been actively practicing as a nurse and nurse practitioner for over 35 years. I believe Nurse Practitioners are key health care providers who can play an important role in the future health of our state. I am thrilled to be a part of the College of Nursing at UTA where I have a part in building the science of nursing through future nurse practitioners and nurse scientists.
