Teaching

Teaching through practice in the clinical setting is a concept that is essential to learning; it is my hope to continue to develop acute and critical care simulation experiences that link classroom to clinical practice.

Research

Research interests include clinical education, pediatric acute care simulation, and Interdisciplinary practice and education.
