My passion for teaching began as a critical care graduate teaching assistant at Clemson while obtaining my Master's degree. For years, I have practiced as a NP in a local family practice setting. My excitement for teaching while working in the simulation lab last year helped me further understand my interest in teaching medicine, nursing skills, and incorporating care and compassion into medical practice. Faith and family values are key as I perform my nursing education vocation. My goal is to integrate my love for nursing and practicing medicine into undergraduate and graduate nursing practice in the Upstate area. Our community believes in the Clemson University standard, and I strive to advance and represent that standard always.
