My main teaching and research expertise is in the areas of public health and nursing in the community. I am also committed to enhancing students' educational experiences by researching and evaluating innovations in nursing education.
My nursing research interests include nursing in the community and nursing education. I am experienced in conducting qualitative research using grounded theory methods. I am particularly interested in understanding the experiences of health care consumers and students of nursing. I am committed to conducting research that produces findings with practical implications.
