I am passionate about integrating diversity, equity, and inclusion; global health; and population health into my teaching, scholarship, professional practice, and service.   

I enjoy teaching courses related to health promotion, social determinants of health, population health, transcultural nursing, health assessment, advanced clinical practicum, and the DNP scholarly project.
