Expertise
 I dreamed of being a nurse before I was even 10 years old.  I was fascinated by the effect that nurses had on patients when I would see them on television.  Then as a teenager, my family experienced a traumatic event in which by brother was injured.  During his convalescence, it was his nurses that made all the difference.  I envisioned one day being able to make such a positive impact on my patients.  Today, I practice as an adult/geriatric nurse practitioner.  Never a day goes by that I am not thankful that I chose nursing.  My profession has had such an positive impact on my life and on the care of my patients.  As an educator, I attempt to share these benefits and my knowledge of caring for adults and seniors with my students.

Content Expert in Gerontology and Adult Health
Since 2004, I have served in an consulting capacity for the American Nurses Credentially Center, which is the arm of ANA that administers certification exams for nurses--at all levels. I have and continue to work with these nurse leaders to develop review materials for nurses seeking certification in adult health and gerontology, both on the undergraduate and advanced practice level. The activities include editing review materials, co-authoring a gerontological nursing review manual and speaking to nursing groups across the country--related to gerontological and adult health issues.
