Title: Assistant Professor, UNMC College of Nursing
Hometown: Bartonville, IL
Interest in Research: As a critical care nurse myself, I have an immense sense of responsibility to improve the ICU experience for both patients and their families. With my research, I am to bring a sense of humanity back to a sometimes inhumane experience. Unfortunately, I have had several deeply personal experiences as a caregiver for my own family members in the ICU, which have further fueled my passion for this work!
Interesting Fact: I spent a summer as an undergraduate student living and studying integrative medicine in China and Tibet.
