I am a graduate of Sikeston High School. I earned a diploma in nursing at Baptist School of Nursing in Memphis, Tennessee. As I pursued my career as an educator I earned a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Southeast Missouri State University and a Master of Science in Nursing from Central Methodist University.
I began working at the Siketon Practical Nurse Program in July of 2005. Prior to teaching I worked as a legal nurse consultant, in the nursery caring for neonates, as an IV therapist, and as a home health nurse.
