The discipline of nursing is both an art and a science. It is the art of caring and compassion for others combined with the science of evidenced based research on the latest interventions for health and disease. Nursing requires the application of theoretical knowledge, hands on clinical skills, effective communication, and critical thinking balanced with care, compassion, and gentleness.
My passion in nursing is caring for the vulnerable, the underserved, the marginalized and I enjoy the opportunity to be able to teach students to use the nursing skills God has given them to care for those who may not otherwise be cared for.
I came to Northwest as an adjunct faculty member in 2005. Interests include: Traveling and exploring the world, Mariners Baseball, Seahawks Football, scrapbooking, and gardening.
