Apart from the essential nursing skills and knowledge, I hope nursing students at Morningside embrace the broader mission and values that extend beyond the classroom. I hope to cultivate a life-long passion for the field of nursing as they will need to adapt to the ever-evolving demands of the profession.
I love the students at Morningside, the opportunity to watch a student grow in their thinking skills, their ability to apply new knowledge to situations and build on what they already know. I like having the students in class early in their academic career as sophomores and then again as juniors and seniors.
My journey as a nursing educator is driven by a profound passion for both healthcare and education. I am dedicated to shaping the next generation of nurses, instilling in them the knowledge, skills and values necessary to excel in this profession. Guiding the nursing students through their educational journey allows me to play a crucial role in building the foundation of their nursing careers.
It is a rewarding experience to see Morningside students grow and develop throughout their education experience.

I love seeing the students’ confidence and maturity grow while completing their plan of study. I believe Morningside provides a strong foundation and our students are ready for their next great challenge upon graduation and all the next steps as they move toward leadership roles.
The culture at Morningside is welcoming and has a sense of community. I feel respected and part of a team. My input is valued and I am able to learn from my colleagues as well as students, and I am pushed to be challenged.
