Let’s learn more about her!
What’s your favorite memory here so far?
My favorite memories are attending the pinning ceremonies for the School of Nursing. Pinning is such a special time for new nurses as it signifies welcoming them into the profession of nursing and celebrating the completion of their educational program. It’s a tradition I’m happy to be a part of.
What brought you to Missouri State?
I graduated with my associate degree in nursing from Missouri State University-West Plains. I completed the Bachelor of Science in nursing completion degree here at MSU. Since that time, teaching at Missouri State had always been THE DREAM. Two years ago, that dream came true when I accepted a faculty position with the School of Nursing.
Where are you from?
I’m from West Plains, Missouri.
How many years have you been at Missouri State?
This is my second year at Missouri State.
What’s your favorite part about working here?
I’ve been incredibly lucky to work with such great faculty members who are student focused. Since coming to MSU, I’ve had some fantastic mentors who are always ready to listen or offer a word of encouragement as I’ve transitioned from bedside clinician to educator.
What’s your favorite spring activity?
When it starts to get warmer outside and the seasons change, I enjoy going to Nathanael Greene Park with my kids and partner, Courtney. We usually walk the trails while my kids play Pokémon Go.
