Associate Professor of Nursing
I completed my undergraduate degree in nursing in 1994, and have been blessed to have had a meaningful nursing career since that time. My professional work has centered around the nursing care of people within the community rather than hospital-based nursing. Since becoming a nurse practitioner, I have worked to balance nursing education and nurse practitioner practice. I am committed to providing care to vulnerable populations, and am currently practicing at the Center for Healing and Hope.
As a community-based nurse, I teach a number of courses that focus on health and nursing outside of institutional care. Highlights of the undergraduate courses I teach include the well-elder project (gerontological nursing) and senior nursing experiences in the school system, with Pokagon Health Services, and in the Elkhart County Correctional Facility, among others (community health nursing).
