Education and Credentials

  • M.S.N. in Nurse-Midwifery, The Ohio State University 
  • B.S.N., Wright State University 
  • B.S. in Biological Sciences, Wright State University


  • Traveling 
  • Family camp at Gull Lake Ministries 
  • Anything that allows me to spend time with my husband and kids and their families
  • Why I'm at Cedarville: It has always been my desire to work in Christian higher education, where I can incorporate my faith not only into my clinical practice, but where it is expected that I help students in doing this as well. Encouraging the next generation of nurses in how to care for patients in a holistic manner, incorporating not only general nursing principles of care, but also focusing on the spiritual aspect of patients is exciting.
