Assistant Professor, Nursing - Graduate
School of Nursing

I have a passion for nursing and emergency medicine as well as education with over 35 years experience in these professions beginning with working as a Registered Nurse (RN) in both the Emergency Department and prehospital setting with Riverside County Fire Department (Cal Fire/CDF) as well as teaching in adult education settings including colleges and universities. I continue my commitment to serve others through patient care and safety as a Family Nurse Practitioner in an Urgent Care setting in the Riverside area and my involvement with one of the federal California Disaster Assistance Teams (CA DMAT-2).I volunteer and give back to my community by serving as a charter member of the Riverside Community Police Review Commission; representing District 2 on the Riverside County Emergency Medical Care Committee (EMCC); serving on the DMAT; and with the La Sierra Little League.  I have been fortunate too have  taught a variety of healthcare programs including EMS First Responders, Emergency Medical Technicians, Paramedics, Mobile Intensive Care Nurses (MICNs), LVN prelicensure, RN prelicensure, RN to BSN, EMS Dispatchers, and Physician Assistants. I continue to serve as a preceptor for Nurse Practitioner students. All of these activities allow me to sahre the gifts and talents that God has given me and to give back to the nursing profession and the community in order to encourage healthcare providers to treat patients and families safely and in a professional caring manner. This means we should always treat others as we want to be treated.  This is so important in all aspects of patient care.
