She is very excited to be returning to UP as an instructor in the Learning Resource Center (LRC.)

She has enjoyed working as a preceptor for both student and new graduate nurses for the past two years, and the mentorship and education aspect that position added to her career. She has worked in the LRC as an adjunct instructor for the past six months and has loved the experience of developing her students’ clinical skills. She hopes to pursue a graduate degree centered around nursing education in the near future. In her free time, she enjoys traveling, spending time with family and friends, cooking, hiking, and coffee.
