Courses Taught

In addition to direct clinical service delivery, I serve as a preceptor for more than 60 family nurse practitioner students each semester during these mobile clinics. During my tenure, I have provided thousands of clinical hours to Clemson University students.


I am a board-certified family nurse practitioner working full time in Clemson Rural Health's mobile outreach program. I graduated from Clemson University’s master’s in nursing with an emphasis in family nurse practitioner in 2019 and currently I am enrolled in the Doctorate in Nursing Practice program (expected completion in May 2024). My areas of expertise include women’s health, reproductive health, and rural outreach. I am the primary nurse practitioner on the mobile health unit and travel throughout the Upstate and Midlands of South Carolina, including Abbeville, Anderson, Chester, Greenwood, Laurens, Marietta, Oconee, Pickens, Spartanburg, Union and York. Through this work on the mobile health unit I reach many rural patients of various racial and ethnic backgrounds. Majority of these patients have no access to healthcare due to finances, distance, and language barriers.

Research Interests

I am currently involved in research and grants related to providing low or no cost birth control across the state of South Carolina and in a study related to Hepatitis C treatment.
