Education
MScN, Western University
BN, University of Calgary
I have been a faculty member, teaching in the BN program, since 2005. My clinical experience includes family centred care in pediatric oncology, neonatal intensive care, and in public health. As an educator I have experience teaching in three BN programs at both local universities. In recent years my teaching focus has been a welcome mix of theory courses in years 1 and 2 as well as community health practice and taking a leadership role in the coordination of the final clinical practicum course in the BN program. I am committed to opening space in classrooms, labs, clinical experiences for ideas that provoke students into thinking broadly about human rights, equity, and advocacy for changes that promote safer, inclusive health care. My interest in embedding arts and humanities in the education of nurses arises from my conviction that health care professionals benefit from engaging in creative processes as a means to reflect on the profound human experiences encountered in practice. My pronouns are she, her, hers.
