I am currently a Professor of Nursing. My specialty area is psychiatric-mental health. Clinically, I have worked in acute care as a staff nurse and in the role of clinical nurse specialist. I have been a nurse educator for many years, and I enjoy teaching students about psychiatric-mental health nursing. My current research interests include nursing education, substance abuse among adolescents and young adults, and the human-animal bond.
