I teach in the undergraduate program. I primarily teach Technologies of Nursing Practice and have maintained an active practice as a critical care nurse.  


My scholarship interests include chronic health diseases in the Caribbean and minority populations and assessment of nursing student learning outcomes.


I am an active member of the American Association of Critical Care Nurses and volunteer with the Virginia Department of Health Medical Reserve Corps
