I had a nursing professor in undergrad always challenge us to seek ways to "pay it forward" in nursing, I sought ways to do that in my career, but I wanted to incorporate Jesus and the Gospel into this teaching as well. That is where the decision to come to Cedarville and teach was one that was directed by God. The opportunity to invest in the next generation of nurses with the knowledge and skills that I had acquired over my time of practice, along with the experiences that God had given me, is exciting. With that being said, it is my desire to grow this spirit of Christian ministry in each student, using God's Word as a foundation to promote godly living and critical thinking. I consider it a privilege to impact future generations of nurses.
