As evidenced by the quote I shared, faith is important to me. Faith led me down the path that led me to King.
I am happy to be a faculty member at King University. I consider it an honor and a privilege, because prior to becoming a faculty member at King, I was a student at King. In 2005, I graduated from the RN-BSN program. In 2007, I graduated from King's first MSN program. My MSN was in Clinical Nurse Specialist. After graduating and passing my certification exam, I obtained a position as an Advanced Practice Nurse in a endocrinology office.
In 2013, I graduated with my DNP degree. After completing my doctorate degree, I was blessed to be able to start at King as a full-time faculty member. During my time at King I have taught in the traditional, RN-BSN, and MSN programs. I have taught in the face-to-face and online formats. I enjoy getting to know the students, while helping them learn and grow both personally and professionally.
