I began teaching full-time at Clemson University in 2016. Prior to this time, I was a part-time lecturer and found that I enjoyed the student interactions and mentoring students through the research process. This love of nursing education has translated into my current position as an assistant professor in translational research, which allows me to continue my research pursuits while educating students related to genomics and health care.

Research Interests

My research interests include screening, rare genetic diseases, inherited cancers, and nursing education.
