I am one of the clinical coordinators for the undergraduate pediatric course and teach clinical sections for both Pediatric Nursing and Community Health Nursing. I have a shared position with the VCU Health System and work 20 hours per week on the Acute Care Pediatric floor as a staff nurse and nurse educator.


I am one of the founding members of the Central Virginia Society of Pediatric Nurses and serve as the Education Chair for that organization. I am an active member of APHON (Association for Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Nurses). I also serve as an Item Writer for the Pediatric Nursing Certification Board and am on the Test Review committee.
