Area of expertise
Director - Center for Innovation in Health Professions Education
A nurse since 1998, I have worked in cardiac care for many years starting on a telemetry nursing unit. I have spent time in the Cardiac Cath lab and worked as the nurse for a cardiologist in his office for 7 years. Following my time in the cardiology office, I moved into clinical research, managing a clinical research department for an endocrinology group. My career in academia started in 2010 as a nursing professor for a small college in Utah.
Outside interests include good food, musical entertainment and spending time with good friends. I enjoy cooking and baking and attending the various shows that Las Vegas has to offer.
Student and faculty success are my passion. My goal is that everyone succeed with the help of the team that surrounds them. I love the Roseman University education model and the environment around the university. It is together that we succeed or fail.
