I came to Clemson SON seven years ago to join as a nursing faculty member. 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 students and helping them become excellent nurses and researchers. I am very involved in the recruitment and selection of new faculty for our department. The foothills of Upstate South Carolina is a wonderful environment for hiking and observing nature!
