I can’t live without… my faith.

If I could spend the day with one person it would be… Faye Abdellah.

If I could travel anywhere, I would go to… the United Kingdom.

When I have down time, I… I'm not sure I know what this is. I love to run, though!

The quote I tend to live by is… “The greatest part of our happiness depends on our dispositions, not our circumstances." - Martha Washington

I am a nurse educator because… I believe in empowering others to better themselves, their families and their communities.

Advice for freshmen… Learn how to embrace self care now so that it is second nature later.

One thing you may not know about me… I am a volunteer camp nurse for 10 days in the summer at Hollow Rock Camp in Toronto, Ohio.
