I graduated from the Royal Alexandra Hospital School of Nursing in 1988.I worked in the acute care setting (surgery) for 12 years. During this time, I had the privilege of being a preceptor/mentor for nursing students. It was also during this time that I quickly realized my desire to be a life-long learner and began to work on my Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree; graduating in 1998.

I began teaching in the BSN Program, at North Island College in January 2000 - about the same time I began to engage in graduate studies. In 2006, I completed my Master of Nursing degree at Athabasca University. During this program, I focused my work on fostering student success and integration of technology into nursing education and practice (it was the dawn of the simulation era),

I love my work and the privilege of working with nursing students. I am energized by their curiosity and engagement as learners.

I am a proud member of the Association of Registered Nurses of BC - Comox Valley Network.
