Program: RN to BS Nursing
I actually graduated with my B.A. in communications with minors in writing, psychology, and French, and then worked in radio broadcasting/cable TV/advertising for quite a number of years before going back to school for Nursing!
I earned my BSN and then my MSN/Nurse Practitioner Certification and enjoyed public health/home-care nursing before starting as a NP, anticoagulation out-patient clinic, at the Syracuse Veteran’s Administration in 2003 to present.
I have had the opportunity to teach at Le Moyne College and have taught many nursing courses, both classroom and online as a part-time faculty member/adjunct with Keuka College, and now as an adjunct instructor at Utica College.
I am completing a doctorate in rural health nursing at Binghamton University, and plan to defend by dissertation titled, “Optimizing TTR Among Warfarin Patients: A Randomized Study of U.S. Military Veterans” by Spring or Fall 2017.
I am formerly an officer (LCDR), USNR (1999-2010).
I have 2 daughters, one a recent graduate of Geneseo (Bio/Chem.) working at the University of Rochester pharmacy and the second, a senior Communications major at Roberts Wesleyan College.
I love travelling, cultures, languages, music, reading, cooking, and professional singing (veteran chorus member of Syracuse Opera Company, 1982-2010).
