I am a Registered Nurse with a Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) and a Bachelor of Science in Psychology. My MSN is with an education focus equipping me to do the two careers I love, nursing and teaching! My clinical experience includes renal/diabetic nursing, general rehabilitation nursing (neuro, ortho, etc.), and gastroenterology. I have been a Registered Nurse since 1989 and this will be the start of my 11th year of teaching Health Science courses. I am married with 3 children: my oldest in now a Pharmacist (PharmD graduate), my son is a freshman in college, and my youngest daughter is an 8th grader. My two oldest are RRISD graduates, and my youngest in well on her way!
As the first person from my family to receive a college education, I can truly say that I value education. I began my post-secondary education at Angelo State University, and later earned my MSN through Walden University. I know each and every student can succeed in reaching their goals for success despite various challenges that some may face. I believe that each individual deserves to be treated with respect and is instrumental in the growth and learning that happens in my classroom. I look forward to a successful year!
