Professional Summary

For over 20 years, I have been a perinatal nurse with experience in labor and delivery, postpartum, and level II NICU Nursing.  I have also been employed within academia for the last 15 years providing educational instruction to undergraduate nursing students in the areas of Obstetric and Newborn Nursing in the didactic and clinical practice setting. During my career I have been involved in the instruction and support of nursing and student development while promoting adherence to AWHONN, ACOG, and AAP practice guidelines.  I have integrated technology (iPad & IBooks) into active learning pedagogies into my course material to facilitate student learning through a positive and challenging learning environment in efforts to maximize knowledge attainment, knowledge transfer, and skill acquisition.  My nursing research interests include furthering the professional development of health care professionals through simulation and standardization, specifically related to low frequency, high crisis events such as neonatal resuscitation.  Over the last 5 years I have served as a research consultant for Mercy Health Fairfield Hospital and provided nursing research support, education on study development, and facilitated development of IRB approved projects conducted by nurses at the bedside. I have been the PI for several IRB approved studies related to neonatal resuscitation program knowledge and application, patient care assistant staff development, and most recently for a study examining the effects of implementing a second stage of labor guideline on maternal and infant birth outcomes.
