Introduction:

It is my pleasure to be a part of the caring nursing faculty at Paul D. Camp Community College (PDCCC). I thoroughly enjoy my job educating undergraduate nursing students about medical surgical nursing in the classroom, simulation lab, and clinical settings. I have enjoyed a lifelong career in Nursing and I am so glad I chose this career path.

I received a diploma as a Registered Nurse (RN) from Washington Hospital School of Nursing in Washington, PA in 1993 and a Bachelors of Science in Nursing (BSN) from Old Dominion University (ODU) in Norfolk, VA in 2000. A Master’s Degree in Nursing (MSN) was earned from ODU, as well. It was obtained in 2006 with a focus on teaching. I am currently pursuing a Doctoral Degree in Nursing Practice (DNP) from The University of Pittsburgh- online.

My acute care nursing experience includes a background in medical surgical nursing, and intensive and cardiac care at three different local hospitals. I have also worked as a case manager and as a utilization review nurse. I am an active member of the National League of Nursing (NLN). I am passionate about volunteering to do community service. I am an active member of the Medical Reserve Corps (MRC, a volunteer group that prepares the community for local emergencies. I am passionate about the health and well being of others and myself. I enjoy aerobic activity and promoting healthy living through diet, stress reduction, and exercise. I am the CommonHealth Coordinator at PDCCC and I also work as a group exercise instructor at the YMCA in my free time.
