Areas of Expertise

Medical-Surgical and Critical Care Nursing


I served as a staff nurse in the Community Health Network in Indianapolis for 20 years, specializing in medical-surgical, critical care, dialysis, and outpatient surgery. I began teaching full-time in the Accelerated Master's Program at UIndy in 2009. I currently serve on the faculty senate and co-chair multiple UIndy and School of Nursing committees.

Favorite Thing About UIndy

I like that UIndy is a small academic community that is committed to getting to know students personally and participating in their personal and professional development. It is very rewarding to be a part of the UIndy family!
