Job Title: Faculty Chair, Health Sciences
April 26, 2012
I'M IN AND NOW I support students in their scholastic endeavors in which success is the ultimate test. If the students aren't successful, we're not successful.
Describe your educational and professional background.
My educational and professional history consists of an earned doctorate in healthcare administration, buttressed by twenty-plus years of practice as an advanced practicing registered nurse, both in the U.S. Navy and civilian context. I have developed and operated several rural health care clinics, providing general and specialized care with a team of physicians, nurses, and ancillary staff. I maintain continuing education classes to become informed of new paradigms of healthcare issues. Learning never stops.
How do you use this experience to help CTU students achieve their goals?
I bring to my students information accrued from “real world” experiences and classroom curricula. Didactics and praxis constitute the theater of the medical arts—both are crucial to effective healthcare pedagogy. It is my espoused mission to share both the text and the context of efficacious health care with my CTU students.
What impresses you most about CTU students?
What impresses me about CTU students is aspiration and perseverance. Many are single working parents determined to achieve a better life for themselves and their family—even in a difficult economy.
