I am a member of Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society in Nursing as well as a member of the Phi Beta Delta Honor Society for International Scholars. Most recently I was inducted as a Fellow in the New York Academy of Medicine. My research interests are in the realm of nurses caring for dying children and I have presented this research nationally as well as internationally. I am also interested in research involving interventions to reduce nurses’ workplace stress associated with caring for dying children. I have been a Maternal-Newborn nurse for many years and I hold certification in this area of nursing. I am currently the Associate Degree in Nursing Program Coordinator.
