I am an Instructor of nursing at the University of Southern Indiana.  I graduated with my BSN in 2011 from USI and immediately started working as nurse on a medical/surgical ICU.  I have 6 years of experience in critical care and 3 years experience in the recovery room.  In 2014, I came back to USI and earned a Master's in Nursing Education, followed by a Doctorate in Nursing Practice.  USI has been my home for nursing education since 2011 when I came to campus for my freshman year of college, and I am blessed to be give an opportunity to pass on the excellent experiences I had here to the new generation of nursing students.  My goal is to address the learning needs of a diverse group of learners so that they can be successful in their nursing education and career.
