I appreciate lifelong learning. My first nursing degree was a diploma from St. Joseph’s Hospital in Savannah, GA.

I am certified as an Adult Clinical Nurse Specialist. I am a member of Sigma Theta Tau International and Phi Kappa Phi. I currently serve on the Nominations Committee for the National League for Nursing, the Education Committee for the National Association of Clinical Nurse Specialists, and the board for a local nursing home. I also served on the Georgia Board of Nursing for six years.
