The quote I tend to live by is: “Don’t’ wait for your ship to come; swim out to it!”

I am a nurse educator because: I love being a nurse and teaching. I love to watch my students grow and become excited when they start to think critically. I smile when their whole face lights up, and they become more confident in themselves.

One thing you may not know about me is: I was an actress in the Original Cast of the Outdoor Drama “Tecumseh”
