I bring to academia over thirty years of patient care experience as a clinical nurse specialist and as an infection prevention professional. As an infection preventionist, I have presented at local, regional, and national conferences, as well as to publish in peer reviewed journals. I have succeeded in being recognized nationally in the field of infection prevention as best evidenced in my invited position as clinical Editor-In-Chief of the Association for Professionals in Infection Control(APIC) TEXT, the primary reference text used world-wide for infection prevention and by receiving the 2011 New Investigator of the Year award. I was recently awarded the UTHSCSA Presidential award for "Distinguished Junior Research Scholar".
