Get to know our faculty – September

As a student, I always found it to be helpful to know a bit about those people who show up to class and stand in the front of the room. I just seemed to learn more when I had a connection, however small, with my instructors.

I was born and raised here in the NW, and have lived up and down the west coast Malibu, Berkeley, Eugene, and Salem. I wouldn’t live anywhere else – except maybe Hawaii! I have 2 elementary school age boys who keep me pretty busy with basketball, baseball, guitar, and chess club. I have always been active and really enjoy swimming and cycling. This summer I am going to register for my first triathlon since my back surgery!

I feel so fortunate to be a part of the School of Nursing. I love working with our students, faculty and staff!

Building the E-LRC

I am working to create a one-stop shopping experience for nursing resources. Each nursing course has a Moodle page which provides discrete information for specific classes. Unfortunately, those resources cannot be accessed by everyone at any time. Many of the resources posted for a unique class can be useful in subsequent course work. The E-LRC will provide that hub of information for the nursing students at UP. I am excited to get it up and running!
