I am certified as an Adult Psychiatric Clinical Nurse Specialist. I have been certified for 4 years and have taught at the College of Nursing for 5 years. I received my Bachelor’s degree from Ohio State in 1997 and my Master’s degree in 2001. I have a Master’s degree in Adult Psychiatric Nursing as well as Community Health Nursing. I am interested in health promotion with the community dwelling chronically mentally ill population as well as geriatric mental health needs. I am also interested in interdisciplinary care planning and teaching.
I currently work with students in the Psychiatric Mental Health Nursing course (N512). My students have their clinical experiences in a group home for the mentally ill as well as an adult inpatient psychiatric unit. In addition, I have taught in the Community Health Nursing course as well as the Older Adult Nursing course.
