Summary

I am a proud University of Nevada, Reno graduate! I graduated in 2004 from the Orvis School of Nursing at the University of Nevada, Reno with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. My first job as a nurse was on a Medical/Oncology Unit at a local hospital. While working as a new nurse, I decided to continue my studies at Orvis to obtain a Master of Science in Nursing as a Nurse Educator and graduated in 2007. I fell in love with the Oncology field and became certified in Chemotherapy and Biotherapy in 2010 and an Oncology Certified Nurse in 2012. In 2010, I started teaching at the Orvis School of Nursing on a letter of appointment basis until I became full faculty in 2013. I continue to practice nursing at a local hospital in the Oncology field in a per diem status and teach full time for the Orvis School of Nursing. I love being a part of the community of nursing and am an active member of Sigma Theta Tau International and the Oncology Nursing Society. In my time as a nurse I have been awarded Medical/Surgical Nurse of the Year (2012), Hospital Nurse of the Year (2012), Senior Scholar Mentor Award (2014 & 2018), 40 Under 40 Award (2016), Most Inspirational Faculty Award (2016) and have been nominated for many other awards at the University and in the community. Teaching students and caring for the oncology population are two of the biggest honors in my life!
