I teach NURS 208: Fundamentals in the 1st semester of the Nursing Program. I enjoy teaching new nursing students and watching them grow throughout the nursing program. Building a strong foundation of time management, prioritization, and safe nursing practice is my passion.
I began my college education studying at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, where I completed my pre-nursing curriculum course work. I graduated from the University of Nebraska Medical Center with my BSN in 2009 and graduated with my MSN from the University of Phoenix in 2014.

I started my career in nursing on a Neuroscience Progressive Care Unit at Bryan Health in Lincoln, NE. While working as a floor nurse, I began working for Union College part time teaching students in the clinical setting. I fell in love with the teaching role and transitioned into a full time nurse educator in 2012. Spring 2014, I began teaching the Fundamentals nursing course.
