A doctorally prepared, board certified executive nurse leader who is passionate about the professional practice of nursing, mentoring new nurse leaders, and developing exemplary environments where nurses thrive. Utilizing expertise learned from the specialty areas of nursing administration, academia, and ambulatory care, I engage, guide, and influence nursing and inter-professional teams to achieve nursing and organizational strategic priorities.
I am the author of a patient safety course book that is used by nurses to obtain continuing education credits. My research interests include nursing workforce, workplace bullying, and the work environment of nurse leaders. An international conference presenter and the recipient of several small research grants, I enjoy spending time at the beach, listening to classical music, and hanging out with family and friends.
