I have been a practicing registered nurse since 2005. I have enjoyed working in a variety of settings and particularly enjoyed my time in the intensive care unit, post anesthesia care, and cardiovascular care. I started working in nursing education in 2009 as a unit education consultant. My experience in the hospital was valuable, but my passion is working with nursing students. Before joining the faculty at the University of Utah, I taught pathophysiology, pharmacology, and medical-surgical nursing courses at a local college. I currently teach foundations, clinical, and online courses. I hope to inspire my students to become life-long learners and confident patient advocates.
