TEACHING:

I teach in the undergraduate program across multiple courses. I have served as clinical coordinator for the women's health clinical rotation and health assessment lab. I have experience teaching online courses in the RN-BS program and as a team facilitator for the interprofessional course. Most recently, I have joined the teaching team in the senior synthesis course for undergraduates. 

SERVICE:

I serve on the School of Nursing's Undergraduate Program Committee and Faculty Search Committee. I am heavily engaged in the Clinical Education Council.

RESEARCH:

I am interested in research on collaborative practice models, inter-professional education and team identity formation. I am currently working on a doctorate degree from the University of Virginia.
