Background:

I am an Associate Professor here at Bryan. I began in healthcare as a phlebotomist when I was 18 years old in Omaha Ne. My background in nursing is in the emergency/trauma setting. After graduating from anesthesia school I worked in Omaha at UNMC (now Nebraska Medicine). I enjoyed this position very much and was able to do everything from minor cases to liver transplant anesthetics. I assisted in opening Bellevue medical center and also did rural locums in Kansas. The patients were all amazing. I moved to education in 2016 and have very much enjoyed that decision ever since. I am a strong advocate for the profession and for students.
