Assistant Professor of Nursing
As a nurse practitioner I have devoted my career to serving underserved and ethnically diverse individuals and families. I believe strongly in the dignity of every person and the right of every individual for excellent health care. Through teaching, this passion for learning and caring can be transmitted to every student. The women and men I teach are my colleagues. Together we can make a difference in the lives and health of many persons and families.
