College of Health Sciences
My nursing career as a Diploma nurse in 1984 and ended with my PhD in Nursing at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center, Denver in 2000. Currently, I am working as a consultant on holistic health practices and recently completed the development of two graduate nursing programs in the role of program chair. Additionally, I have worked and taught graduate and undergraduate plus MBA students in a variety of clinical settings including acute care - intensive care unit, OB-GYN, geriatrics, and community nursing. My research interest is in the area of theory development with emphasis on holistic praxis. I am a clinical nurse specialist with several publications. Love to read, run, ride my bike, and to travel. I am a holistic thinking and tends to look at the whole picture in every situation and with my health/research focus. My professional goal is to develop a holistic praxis theory one day!
