I maintain an active practice as a Family Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner in the Mental Health Dept. at the McGuire VAMC and teach in VCU’s Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner program. I also provide guest lectures in the undergraduate psychiatric nursing course.
My early research focused on PTSD, Secondary Traumatic Stress, Military Culture, and Compassion Fatigue. I am currently pursuing participation in a study as a member of a Health Informatics Team, as well as principle investigator for a telehealth simulation in the Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner concentration.
I serve on the School of Nursing Master’s Program Committee, and several Task Forces within the SON. I am a member of Sigma Theta Tau, the American Association of Nurse Practitioners (AANP), The Virginia Council of Nurse Practitioners (VCNP), the American Psychiatric Nurse Association (APNA), TriService Nursing Research Program (TSNRP) Research Interest Groups: Biobehavioral Health and Nursing Systems/Administration Database, National Organization of Nurse Practitioner Faculties (NONPF) and Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS).
I also serve on the Virginia Department of Health Professions Opioid Curricula Steering Committee.
