I currently serve as the Clinical Coordinator for the Undergraduate Pediatric course. I also work at VCU Health as the Nurse Educator on the Acute Care Pediatric Unit.
My research focuses on infection in the pediatric and neonate patients, with an emphasis on sepsis and reduction of central line associated bloodstream infections (CLABSIs).
I am a member of the Academy of Neonatal Nursing and the American Association of Critical Care Nurses. I am involved in several hospital-wide committees at VCU Health focusing on staff recruitment and retention, and sepsis/infection.
