I earned my Bachelor of Science in Nursing from St. Catherine University in 2001 and completed my Masters in Nursing from the University of Minnesota in 2010.
My clinical experience is in adult acute care nursing and I've spent the last 8 years practicing as an emergency room nurse. Aside from providing direct patient care in the ED, I have participated as a mentor to new nurses entering into the department and was a member of the Nursing Research Council at United Hospital, a committee that looks to improve patient care in the hospital using evidence-based research. I started my teaching career as an assistant professor in the Associate Degree Nursing Program at St. Catherine University in 2012.
My primary areas of interest include using evidence-based research/ knowledge to promote excellence in nursing education and direct patient care in the acute care setting.
