Professional Summary


I have gained considerable experience as an emergency nurse since I started in the emergency department (ED) in 2001. Although I love the fast-paced nature of the ED, I have experienced times of frustration when I felt that I have not provided high-quality care to patients in the ED. I needed to better understand and address issues that would compromise care in the ED, especially during the triage process. I sought out doctoral education and postdoctoral training in order to focus on improving the quality and safety of care for patients seeking treatment in the Emergency Department. This has enabled me to begin a promising career researching the impact of interruptions on ED patients. My research focus has the potential to greatly improve the care of ED patients and possibly improve patient outcomes.
