I have been teaching with Mercyhurst since 2012.  First in the ASN Program, then moving to the RN to BSN Completion Program in 2015.  I also work as a surgical nurse in the OR at Saint Vincent Surgery Center.  Previously, I worked in the main OR as well as ortho/neuro/trauma at Saint Vincent Hospital.  I graduated with my MSN in Nursing Education from Clarion and Edinboro Universities in 2015, my BSN from Penn State in 2011, and my Nursing Diploma from Saint Vincent School of Nursing in 1995.  My research interests include what motivates ASN students to pursue their BSN degree and creating a culture of safety in the OR.  I am currently a member of Sigma Theta Tau International and the Association of Perioperative Registered Nurses.
