For the past decade, I have implemented numerous educational, research and quality improvement projects to enhance health outcomes for sick infants and children. As the Director of the North Coast and East Bay Perinatal Systems in the Regional Perinatal Programs of California, I have analyzed health outcomes of newborns in Northern California. As a consultant for the Preemie Project, I was able to support the evaluation process for a multidisciplinary team that implemented a medical-legal-community collaborative for preemie infants. In addition, I co-authored two HRSA-funded training grants focusing on graduate nursing training for sick infants and children.
- Neonatal & Pediatric Physiology
- Neonatal Pathophysiology
- Pediatric Pathophysiology
- Neonatal/Infant Neurodevelopmental & Neurohavioral Development
- Pediatric Acute Care Pathophysiology
For the past ten years, I have focused my clinical activities on consulting on complex health care needs of sick infants and children, assessing the implementation of risk-appropriate health care for high-risk infants in acute care and community settings, developing advanced practice neonatal and pediatric nursing roles in acute care and community settings, and developing innovative clinical training opportunities for graduate nursing students to work with at-risk infants and children in hospital and community settings in California, Hawaii, and New Zealand.
