I am currently teaching in the RN-BSN program. I also help with many simulations in the undergraduate program. My research interests are in screening children for asthma, studying biomarkers and respiratory disorders, particularly asthma, and finally working with families in helping them to manage their asthma. I also serve as a consultant for nursing programs who are interested in moving to or are in the process of moving to a concept-based nursing curriculum.
