I have a wonderful career in Nursing. I earned my undergraduate degree in Nursing. My MS-degrees are in Education as well as Maternal Child Nursing (University of Minnesota). My PhD is also in Nursing from the University of Minnesota. I became fascinated with the interrelatedness between practice, theory, and research as an undergraduate student. Excellent mentors and role models who connected theory, evidence-based practice, informatics, and research to my daily work in clinical practice have surrounded me throughout my career. What a gift! In January 2014, I joined the online DNP Program faculty at Chamberlain College of Nursing. As a Visiting Professor, I have experience spending time with DNP students in NR700; NR701; NR704; NR706; and, NR708.
On a personal note, I am an avid reader; I am the mother to 4 children; I love many outdoor activities including peaceful hours fishing year round in the backwaters of the Mississippi River in my home state of Minnesota.
