What inspired you to pursue a career in nursing education?

“I practiced at the bedside, in acute care, for over 16 years. I was fortunate to experience many practice areas of nursing during that time and I always found myself gravitating toward opportunities to teach and mentor new nurses.

I am passionate about our future nursing workforce and proud to facilitate an exceptional nursing education journey for our students!”
