My role as a Clinical Nurse Specialist (CNS) with the Division of Vascular Surgery and as faculty in the School of Nursing fulfills two areas of focus teaching and practice. My clinical practice role shares a rich experience of advanced nursing practice with patients in many settings, currently with patients with vascular disorders. I seek to provide quality in my clinical practice and a respect and compassion for each person that I encounter. I also attempt to provide each patient with an understanding of their disease and risk factors and engage each patient in the management of their disease.

As a faculty in the School of Nursing, one of my great enjoyments is the enrichment of clinical knowledge of graduate nursing students seeking a role in advanced practice. It is my goal to instill in each student an enthusiasm for learning in-depth knowledge about diagnosing and management of patients in their clinical practice and a compassion for the patients they will be treating. I enjoy both teaching and patient care and I thoroughly enjoy my role as an advanced practice registered nurse (APRN).
