Hello! I have been a nurse for almost 30 years with a variety of clinical experiences caring for patients in many areas of nursing. Some of my focus areas include neurology, orthopedics, mental health, and community health. While I love caring for patients, I also love assisting students in becoming tomorrow’s nurses and my future colleagues! I teach as well as serve as the Simulation Director at Dordt and am a nationally certified healthcare simulation educator. Developing and implementing clinical learning in the simulation center is a passion of mine as I walk beside students in learning to care for all of God’s children!
