A LITTLE ABOUT ME

She has worked as a nurse in a post-anesthesia recovery room, a medical cardiac intensive care unit, and a neuroscience-critical care unit, and completed her B.S.N, M.S. and Ph.D. (with Patricia Benner) at UCSF School of Nursing. She taught pre-licensure nursing in an accelerated second degree program for 8 years before recently returning to clinical practice and is now the Clinical Nurse Specialist for Neuroscience and Critical Care at UCSF Medical Center.
