I completed my Baccalaureate degree in nursing at the University of Wyoming and then worked as an adult critical care nurse for 15 years before entering graduate school. I completed my MSN in Nursing Informatics at the University of Utah and earned a PhD at the University of Utah. The primary focus of my studies was nursing informatics, decision support, and patient safety. I worked for several years as the Clinical Information Systems Manager at a 300–bed tertiary care facility. My research interests include patient safety, critical care, quality, disaster nursing, and clinical decision-making.
