I am an Assistant Professor at the University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Nursing and an Advanced Practice Clinical Nurse Specialist in Community/Public Health Nursing. I received my doctorate in nursing from UNMC.


I currently teach graduate administration courses, and have also taught in women's health and community/public health nursing.


My research interest includes health effects of life transitions for women and children. I am particularly interested in the self-reported health status, health determinants, health services utilization and public health nursing interventions for midlife women. I am part of a research team with Dr. Katherine Kaiser and Dr. Margaret Kaiser.


I practice as a consultant for quality management, evaluation activities, or statistical review. I have been involved as an evaluator or consultant in projects such as perinatal depression, early childhood mental health, external quality review organization (EQRO) reviews, and healthy children initiatives.

I have practiced in a variety of settings in Nebraska and Iowa in women’s health, community/public health nursing, and administrative positions. I have experience in labor & delivery, mother-baby care, home health care, staff development, quality management, and working with large datasets.

I am also the Project Director for the Reducing Disparities in Type 2 Diabetes Care Through a Network of Nursing Centers. Sponsor: Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) Nurse Education, Practice and Retention Program (NEPR) grant (1.6 Million)
