Biography

As a 1998 graduate of Indiana University-Purdue University of Indianapolis Bachelor of Science in Nursing Program, I subsequently began working as an RN on a neuro-critical care unit.  Later, I also worked as a school nurse in Indianapolis and began teaching for Marian College School of Nursing in the summer of 2001. This job led me to begin considering teaching as a career.

After beginning the MSN-MBA program at Anderson University, I began working for Ivy Tech Community College as full-time faculty in their LPN/ASN programs and graduated from Anderson University in 2007.  

I began teaching for Indiana Wesleyan University as an adjunct facilitator in the RNBS Nursing Department; and became full time in July 2013. I have been married for 37 years and enjoy numerous areas of service for our church, time with our children and grandchildren, gardening and hiking.
