About Me

I am a graduate of the University of Mary's dual-degree health care administration program where I received the Future of Nursing Award. I began teaching as an adjunct faculty member at the University of Mary in October 2016, in the online graduate nursing program. I have over 11 years of clinical experience in medical and radiation oncology, during which I was the recipient of the Oncology Nursing Excellence Award. I have served in various leadership roles including as a Nurse Manager and Assistant Director. I am well versed in regulatory and accreditation, nursing quality, and risk management and have held various positions in these fields. I serve as a reviewer for the Clinical Journal of Oncology Nursing and am currently pursuing a Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) Post-Master's Certificate at Regis College.

Why I’m At Mary

The University of Mary affords me the opportunity to play a role in the education of future nurse leaders, clinicians, and educators. I am humbled by the opportunity to shape and mold the future of the nursing profession.
