Q. Tell us a little bit about yourself.

A. I started my career in nursing as a public health nurse, and for the past twenty years, I’ve worked as a family nurse practitioner, mostly in primary care but also in endocrinology and urgent care. I have a special interest in communicable disease, adolescent health, and caring for underserved populations. On the weekends, I love to ski, hike and be outside with my family.

Q. What did you do prior to joining EBSCO’s Nursing and Allied Health Editorial Leadership Team?

A. I earned a doctorate in nursing, focusing on community health; specifically, how to promote healthy transitions to freedom for people released from incarceration in Denver, Colorado. After I graduated, I worked as a family nurse practitioner and taught graduate and undergraduate nursing. At my last employer, I was able to bring my care management skills to the table helping direct and coordinate cost-effective referral guidelines for our accountable care organization.

Q. What inspired you to become a healthcare professional?

A. I’ve always been curious about people, and I love learning what motivates people to make choices in their lives. I’m interested in the different ways we live; I enjoy figuring out big problems, and I want to support vulnerable people in their efforts to live meaningful happy lives.
