Research interests include how to better support nurse's to speak up when they have a concern about patient care, the use of simulation in undergraduate nursing curricula and employment of adjunct instructors in the clinical setting.
Teaching is my true passion and I feel blessed to work with students in SU's nursing department. As a teacher I strive to be readily available for my students, to provide them specific feedback to promote their growth and learning, and finally to create a positive learning environment.
