BS in Nursing- University of Texas at Arlington MS in Nursing- NMC
Practiced as a bedside RN for 13.5 years before I moved into teaching. I have worked primarily in Mother/Baby, GYN, Repro/Endo, and NICU--always with moms and babies! My true love is the NICU. If I wasn't teaching, that's where I would choose to be. I also serve as the Outreach NICU Clinical Nurse Educator for Methodist Women's Hospital. I am certified through the NCC in "Low-Risk Neonate" nursing.
My capstone project (The Mental Health Effects of COVID-19 on Nurses: An Evidence Based Project" is pending for possible publication with the Online Journal of Issues in Nursing (OJIN).
Professional Service/Recognition/Charitable Boards
I am a member of the National Association of Neonatal Nurses (NANN)
