I am a wife, mother of three kids, nurse, and educator. I have worked every level of nurse from a Licensed Practical Nurse all the way to a Masters prepared nurse. I began nursing in 2003 specializing in medical/surgical nursing in the areas of trauma and float pool. I have also practiced as a nurse care coordinator and a float pool nurse. I came to Avila in 2016 to share my passion for nursing and shape students into high-quality, safe nurses. I teach at the Junior and Senior levels in the classroom, laboratory, and clinical settings. I truly enjoy getting to know my students and seeing their faces when they grasp difficult concepts. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with family, going to the lake, traveling, and sewing.
