I have been with Cumberland University since 1992 except 2 short attempts at retirement. My areas of teaching are Community Health Nursing and Gerontology. I have had the opportunity to do medical-surgical nursing and clinical at various hospital in the area.
I started teaching before a Masters was required and have been faculty in both BSN and Associates Degree programs. From the beginning, I have had wonderful mentors to help me along my chosen path.
I was employed at National HealthCare for many years as a nurse educator and have worked as a RN in the facilities.
Both of these oportunities have increased my enjoyment in working with student and the aging population. Both groups are at-risk for very different reasons.
My current role as Coordinator for Nursing at the Mt. Juliet allows me time to continue teaching and advocating for students.
