I came to Clemson SON seven years ago to join the nursing faculty. I have a clinical appointment at the Greenwood Genetics Center as a pediatric nurse practitioner in the Metabolic Clinic. My clinical practice informs my research interests. I am passionate about working with undergraduate and graduate students and helping them become excellent nurses and researchers. I am very involved in the Healthcare Genetics program in the School of Nursing.
