I am grateful for the opportunity to engage in the tripartite mission of nursing; teaching, practice, and research. I teach undergraduate (BSN) and graduate (PNP) nursing students. I practice part-time in a rural underserved pediatric medical home. My research involves children with ADHD and nursing in primary care. My 2019 professional goals include being more involved in school-based mental health services.
