Academic Interests

My scholarly interest is in Clinical practice; as a practicing nurse and practitioner, I see the role of the nurse changing in response to the current healthcare policy upheaval ~ a very challenging, and interesting time to be stepping into the healthcare world. Also, I'm interested in the evolving science of Narrative Medicine. The care of the sick unfolds in stories. The effective practice of healthcare requires the ability to recognize, absorb, interpret, and act on the stories and plight of others.
