Nurse by trade but born again teacher! I am excited about sharing my over 12 years of broad nursing experience. My career has exclusively focused around Oncology(cancer) and the care of all patient types within the Oncology spectrum. I am additionally board certified in Oncology(OCN). I have also moonlighted during my career in Vascular Access/IV team, and Infusion Center. I have most recently managed the entire Oncology Service Line at Memorial Hospital in South Bend; which included the Inpatient unit, outpatient clinic and the infusion center. I have migrated to a career in teaching to fill my personal cup and inspire students to want to help others and serve in their healthcare community. Healthcare is a vibrant, robust, high demand career field that is full of opportunities and employment. I hope that during my instruction to help guide students toward a fulfilling career.
Personally, I reside in south county; Galien, on my very self-sufficient farm where I raise chickens, pigs and a beautiful garden. I also raise and breed peacocks. I have a very stellar husband named Bob as well as 3 children, Ethan, Vivian and Roman. We all enjoy camping and exploring new things.
