Before teaching full-time at Vermont Tech, I have worked at Norwich University as a lecturer and Gifford Medical Center where some of my roles included diabetes educator, full-time and per-diem staff nurse, charge nurse and supervisor on Med/Surg. My nursing experiences span over 25 years. I have also worked at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center as a staff nurse and charge nurse giving me the BIG hospital experience. I have lived in Vermont since 1989, have raised my children here and am pleased to call Vermont my home.
Here at Vermont Tech in the ADN nursing program, I teach Principles and Practices of Nursing IV and V (NUR 2030, NUR 2130) and the clinical portions of the fall and spring semester. I also teach the Transition and Trends (NUR 2010). I am the current ADN program chair and chair many of the ADN curriculum courses. My hospital experiences have been critical when working with student nurses to prepare them for their careers after graduation.
Lastly, I completed my advanced practice post graduate certificate (APRN) and now work per diem at UVMMC and a small private practice doing primary and geriatric care. This also gives me a great deal of experiences to share with my students.
When I am not teaching nursing courses or working, I enjoy spending time with family, traveling, and enjoying Lake Champlain. I love walking and hiking the trails of Vermont. We live in a beautiful state!
