PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE
Kris has 33 years of experience as a nurse with 26 years as a nurse practitioner. She is currently starting her fourth year as a full-time faculty. She has worked in hospital, clinic and community settings and, in addition to her time at Clarke, runs a diabetes program for children at Medical Associates in Dubuque.

TEACHING PHILOSOPHY
As a professional nurse and educator my mission is to promote, enhance and excite the learning of my students. I want them to be challenged and to grow over their time at Clarke to become strong, independent and caring individuals with the highest standards for quality. I want to spark and develop their passion to strive for excellence in the nursing field. My intent is to build on their unique gifts and talents and to promote personal growth. I would like to see that they develop and grow not only in their technical skills and knowledge but also and more importantly as people who care and continually strive to be better.

CLARKE'S IMPACT ON KRIS
I am so happy to be a part of the Clarke family. It is small and personal and very welcoming.

KRIS'S IMPACT ON STUDENTS
I hope that I help my students develop or expound on their passion for nursing. I want them to feel and see what an impact they will have on their patients.
