  • I have had a long career in nursing and health informatics. My clinical experience, administrative experience, and academic experience provide a combination of skills that have allowed me to do a number of different roles in my career. I'm looking forward to this point in my career when I can mentor junior faculty and students.

    What's it like to teach at Parkinson?

    I like the camaraderie and collaboration between all members of the Parkinson faculty and staff. People genuinely care about each other and work hard to make the school a success.

    What called you to or attracted you to Loyola?

    I wasn't looking to make a change, but the opportunity to have access to electronic health record data was very attractive. Even though I had relationships with Chief Nursing Officers in every health system in Milwaukee, it was difficult for nurses to have access to data. That has not been an issue at Loyola University Chicago.
