“A journey of a thousand miles must begin with the first step.” Chinese Proverb


A large part of my journey has involved King University. I am originally from the Southwest Virginia region, having grown up in Glade Spring, Virginia. This is a beautiful part of the country and the people here are very special. These are among the many reasons I choose to continue to live and work in this area.

My undergraduate education began at Emory and Henry College in Emory, Virginia where I completed a double major in Biology and Chemistry in 2002. After four years of studying these sciences, I decided that my natural calling was to help people. At that point in my education, I decided to pursue nursing as a career. I then came to King College and obtained a BSN in 2004 and embarked on my career as a registered nurse. While working as a RN, I began my graduate education at East Tennessee State University in Johnson City, TN where I completed my MSN with a concentration as a Family Nurse Practitioner in 2006. I practiced in an orthopedic outpatient setting for over six years before coming to King to begin a new career in higher education.

I began my teaching career at King in the fall of 2013, when I taught in the traditional undergraduate and graduate nursing programs. I am now primarily teaching in the MSN FNP program. I enjoy being involved in the students’ transformation from the role of registered nurse to role of advanced practice nurse. It has been a very rewarding and enriching experience.   

My personal interests include reading, traveling, and watching Atlanta Braves baseball. I am married and live in Bristol, Virginia.
