Biography

Teaching and learning are reciprocal: Without one, the other cannot exist. This relationship takes place in a variety of settings and a variety of ways as nursing is unique. Education does not just happen for the student just in the classroom but evolves with interactions with faculty, peers, clients, and family members. The transition from student to professional registered nurse is a challenge, and I see myself as a facilitator of this growth.
