College of Health Sciences
I have been practicing nursing since 1974. I have a BSN, MS, and PhD from The Ohio State University. My special areas of expertise include working with children with disabilities, genetics, public health, health policy and administration. I have experience as a clinical nurse specialist, faculty, and administrator. For 15 years I worked as Chief of the Division of Prevention at the Ohio Department of Health. I have a special expertise in strategic planning, health policy development, emergency preparedness, health promotion and risk reduction, environmental health issues, genetics, and leadership and management skills. I retired from working at Wright State University College of Nursing and Health as an Assistant Professor. I also have been a long time member of the Ohio Nurses Association where I am a legislative ambassador and an nursing advocate.
