I am a Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) with over 15 years of mental health nursing experience. In addition to being board certified through the American Nurses Credentialing Center as an FNP, I also hold a national certification through the Pediatric Nurse Credentialing Board (PNCB) as a Pediatric Primary Care Mental Health Specialist (PMHS). I am currently a Senior Lecturer and the lead teacher for Mental Health Nursing at Clemson University. I continue to work as a FNP as needed for Lutheran Hospice. I am a member of the Faculty Search Committee for Clemson University’s School of Nursing, as well as the Faculty Counselor for the Gamma Mu chapter of Sigma Theta Tau.

Research Interests

I am interested in the management of depression in the primary care setting, and I have explored the clinical problem of the lack of training that primary care providers have received in depression management. I am also interested in end-of-life care.
