TEACHING

I am the Concentration Coordinator and teach in the Adult-Gerongology Primary Care concentration in the Master’s program. I teach teams of interprofessional students in community based clinical settings to care for older adults aging in place. I also teach using live clinical simulation and use technology in the classroom to simulate clinical case scenarios

RESEARCH

The primary focus of my research is in educational research with a specific focus on interprofessional education, and the use of technology in education. Using Benner’s Novice to Expert framework, I developed and studied a practice based nurse practitioner educational model with the goal of enhancing transitions into practice. I have also participated in community engagement research, with the goal to develop models of care to improve health outcomes for older adults aging in place with a high chronic disease burden.

SERVICE

I am an active member of the Virginia Council of Nurse Practitioners (VCNP), Gerontological Advanced Practice Nurses Association (GAPNA), The American Geriatric Society (AGS), and The Gerontological Society of America (GSA).
