My teaching experience includes homeschooling my two children for five years from kindergarten through 5th grade which was one of the greatest joys I have experienced. I also taught 7th and 8th grade English, 10th grade Biology and 12th grade AP Biology at a private school. As a school nurse in all grade levels, I have taught health related issues spanning eight years. Currently, I serve as an educator in health care, and provide crisis counseling for mental health patients.

I am a member of the honor society of nursing, Sigma Theta Tau International.
I obtained my undergraduate nursing degree and my Master's degree in Nursing Education from Texas Woman's University. My experience includes over 30 years as a Labor & Delivery, Psychiatric Nursing with a special emphasis on Children and Geropsychiatry, School Nursing, Home Health, Medical/Surgical Nursing, TeleHealth and Crisis Intervention. I have served as a Preceptor for nursing students and RNs changing their focus of specialization.
Nursing and education run in my family, with my son currently a First Lieutenant in the Army in the CRNA program. He previously worked as a Neurology ICU RN and Heart Transplant RN, and my daughter is a Middle School Math Educator. When I am not spending time with my husband and family, including a daughter-in-law and new son-in-law, you can find me involved in my church when I am not loving on my furry puppy friends. My special interests include prevention of Women and Child Abuse, Crisis Pregnancy Center, pursuing more knowledge as I care for my mother who has Alzheimer's, and sharing that knowledge with other caregivers.
