  • My Story

    My home/roots were in North Georgia in Metro Atlanta. Although I enjoyed my time in Florida for college and later returned there to be near special friends… my heart has always been living near mountains and enjoying my favorite Fall season. My first nursing job was at Duke in North Carolina, thus always loved the mountains and had a desire to return to live in NC. Always enjoyed spectator sports and have enjoyed attending student and pro competitions everywhere that I have lived and taught. Mentoring Health Science Students and drawing from my many years in healthcare to help inspire students and explore many career paths is a true joy. The field is broader and inspires me to stay physically active and strive for a healthy lifestyle as we talk about it daily in classes. Maintaining pediatric clinical practice expertise is important and staying current with certification and knowledge base enhances my teaching. Thankful for God’s gift of mercy/compassion in serving daily, and helping one person at a time to the best of my ability.
