How I Might Be Able to Assist

I have had an extensive and varied background in hospital and nursing administration for over 30 years. I am willing and able to assist or answer students questions relating to hospital or healthcare administration, federal or state regulatory requirements, and other areas of healthcare administration related to hospitals and clinics.

Please feel free to ask me about varied topics of healthcare because it is my pleasure and joy to interact with students. I have mentored many Master’s degree students and provided them with degree projects through my workplace, as well as having reviewed student Capstone requirements.

Professional Projects or Initiatives of Interest

Future projects that I would like to pursue include:

Write an article for publication related to personal preparedness and risk assessment for unforeseen disasters.
