I have taught at the College of Nursing since 1979 when I was hired as a medical surgical instructor in the undergraduate program. My husband and I moved here from Michigan where I received my BSN from Michigan State University and my MPH in public health nursing and health education from the University of Michigan. I received my PhD in sociology with a concentration in family and community health and a minor in health education occupations at North Carolina State University. I have worked in a variety of hospital and community settings and have taught at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Currently, I teach undergraduate research and quantitative methods in the doctoral program. For 5 years, I led a statewide initiative to develop a school nurse case management program to address the needs of students with chronic illnesses. The project was funded by the Kate B. Reynolds Health Care Trust. Since then I have continued to do research related to school nursing and students with chronic illness. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, traveling, cooking and going to the theater or musical performances.
