I am an accomplished registered nurse with 35 years post graduate experience. My nursing background includes experience and certifications in Orthopedics, Medical-Surgical nursing, quality and patient safety and leadership. Originally from England, I have been fortunate to have nursed in England, Australia, the Middle East and the US.

I currently hold a full-time Clinical Instructor position in the Bachelor of Science nursing program at USCB. I teach online classes for Public Health and nursing students and instruct nursing students in the Simulation and the nursing skills labs. With a strong work ethic and a passion for high standards I bring my diverse experience to support and educate the nursing students, helping shape the best nurses of the future in this ever changing and challenging healthcare arena.

In May 2020 I graduated with a Doctorate in Nursing Practice from Regis University, CO. My dissertation focused on predicting patient falls in a Medical-Surgical unit.

I love to travel and for life -work balance I enjoy walking, swimming and practicing and instructing yoga.
