I am a Registered Nurse (RN) and a graduate of both Mohawk College and McMaster University, with both a BScN and a Master’s degree in Science with a focus on Teaching. I worked as a nurse and educator at the Hamilton Health Sciences Corporation for thirteen years. My clinical focus is in cardiovascular disease and health promotion. I also worked as a Public Health nurse where I did home visits for a variety of clients such as the care of new mothers, well baby visits, post hospital discharge and school visits. I have been a nursing professor in the Collaborative Mohawk-McMaster BScN Program for the past 15 years. I was the coordinator for the first year students at Mohawk for five years, until taking on this new coordinator role. I have also been a lead for our Global Health program at the Mohawk site, where we send students to a variety of clinical placements in remote areas of Canada and around the world. I bring my knowledge of our health care sector and my joy of working with new students to this program.
