Assistant Professor of Nursing

Department Chair of Nursing

Rosenstock Hall, Suite 24


I bring a rich nursing background to Hood College with 40+ years of nursing experience including critical care, emergency departments, and leadership roles in acute care. I transitioned into teaching in 2005, and found a passion again!

I am excited to be a part of educating the future nurses of our country, who will play a key role in shaping the future of healthcare. At Hood College, I serve as the Chair of the nursing program and teach nursing courses, such as Research and Evidence-Based Practice, and Leadership.
