About Me

I am a faculty member in the accelerated (evening/weekends) and traditional BSN program in Widener University's School of Nursing. My philosophy of teaching evolved from my experiences as a teacher and student. Reflecting upon my beliefs of teaching and learning, my role is to assist students in successfully balancing course materials, clinical, and enhance academic preparation for success. I am a navigator to facilitate and enhance self-reflection to promote an enthusiasm for learning and support a foundation for lifelong learning.

Research Interests

My research interests include interprofessional education, communication and collaboration, and integration of technology into nursing curricula.
