Dr. Glynn has practiced as a staff nurse on a cardiac unit, a school nurse, a parish nurse, and currently as nursing faculty. She began her career at the Associate degree level and practiced as a cardiac nurse. After realizing she enjoyed the teaching aspect of nursing, Dr. Glynn returned to school and obtained a bachelor's degree and began teaching at the Associate degree program from which she had graduated. After becoming board certified as a Medical-Surgical nurse, Dr. Glynn then began to pursue her Master’s in Nursing Education in order to continue teaching part-time. Realizing that teaching full-time was her ultimate goal, she went on to a doctoral degree.

She is currently an IPE Fellow at Quinnipiac.
