What are your goals as a teacher at Kaskaskia College? To inspire my students to be the best nurse and person they can be. I would also like to be as proficient as an instructor can be so that I give my students the best possible education.

What did you do before you began teaching at Kaskaskia College? Before I became a nurse I was a restaurant manager. Working with a variety of people really helped me in my next career of being a nurse. I came to Centralia and Kaskaskia College to pursue my nursing career. After I graduated from KC, I went to Good Samaritan Hospital in Mt. Vernon and worked in 3-Central which was the urology, oncology, and surgical unit. When we moved into the new hospital I transferred to the 3200 which is the Cardiac-Step Down Unit. I still work there as a prn nurse.
