Personal Note:

I am so grateful that God called me to be both a nurse and an educator.  I love sharing my passion for children with my students.  I especially enjoy working out my faith through my practice both in the classroom and in the clinical setting.  I gain far more than I give in my teaching role.  PLNU students are extraordinary individuals and it is a privilege to teach them and learn from them.
