I teach in the undergraduate program, in both the didactic and clinical environments. I coordinate and teach the senior capstone course entitled Senior Synthesis and I teach Concepts of Nursing to the beginning nursing students. Additionally, I teach the capstone course entitled Practicum in Clinical and Management Decision-Making in the RN to BS online program.


The primary focus of my current scholarship is interprofessional education for pre-licensure students. Additionally, I have an interest in research and advancing nursing care standards for end-of-life (EOL) care in the acute hospital setting.


I am a member of the American Nurses Association, Virginia Nurses Association and the National League for Nursing (NLN). I serve on the University Undergraduate Curriculum Committee as well as on the Undergraduate Program Committee and Clinical Education Council at the School of Nursing. I also serve on a number of campus-wide committees and sub-committees that plan and implement Interprofessional Education curricula for professional pre-licensure students.
