Nursing has been my passion for many years, from the care of critically ill adults to the care and development of nursing students. My background runs the gamut of cardiovascular ICU, cath lab, private cardiology practice, travel nursing, nursing administration and chief nurse executive, academia, and simulation.

Simulation is another area that I love – bringing the didactic content to life in the simulation lab and hands on experiences will enhance and grow your personal nursing practice. With the construction of our new simulation center at OUHSC, students will learn in an innovative, immersive environment designed to develop your nursing knowledge, attitudes, and abilities.
My teaching style is relaxed and flexible.  I have high expectations for students, and I expect your attention, concentration, and work.  To master your nursing program, you will need to read, understand, and practice the concepts we discuss in class, the laboratory and simulations, and clinical settings. I will work hard to help you bring the theory to the bedside in a competent, compassionate, and courageous manner.  You will never learn everything you need to know to be a nurse, but you will know how to think through problems and work to improve your patient’s outcomes. I look forward to working with you. Welcome to OU Nursing!
