This is my fifth year teaching at VTC and my first year as the Associate Degree Nursing Department Chair. I am involved in several college committees and nursing organizations to stay current. Before teaching full-time, I have worked at Norwich University and Gifford Medical Center where some of my roles included diabetes educator, full-time lecturer and staff nurse as well as charge nurse and supervisor. I have also worked at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center as a staff nurse and charge nurse. I have lived in Vermont since 1989, have raised my children here and am pleased to call Vermont my home.
Here at Vermont Tech, 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) and Advanced Pharmacology (NUR 2011). My hospital experiences have been critical when working with student nurses to prepare them for their careers after graduation.
When I am not teaching nursing courses, I enjoy spending time with family, traveling, and enjoying Lake Champlain.
