I am dually certified as a Neonatal and Pediatric Nurse Practitioner, and have over thirty years of clinical experience in neonatal and pediatric care. Since 1995 I have been affiliated with the UCSF School of Nursing as a clinical faculty member. In this clinical faculty role I provide didactic teaching and skills and clinical mentoring to neonatal and pediatric advanced practice nursing students.

I view myself as a neonatal/pediatric generalist and am interested in many neonatal and pediatric health issues such as nutrition and growth, and pulmonary, gastrointestinal, neurologic and hematologic physiology and pathophysiology.

My faculty role has cultivated an interest in the integration of technology into nursing education. I was previously lead clinical faculty for a SF-based student cohort enrolled in a dual-campus distance neonatal nurse practitioner training program. I have continued to develop resources for neonatal and pediatric training based on this work. My current teaching interests include development of portfolios, integration of inter-professional learning into nursing education and applying strategies such as simulation and virtual learning environments to nursing curricula. I have recently been involved in the development and oversight of an education support hub for school of nursing faculty and staff to support this and other innovative education strategies.

Current Activities:

Lead developer of “Guide to Neuro Care,” a website devoted to neonatal neurologic and neuroprotective care, in partnership with the Academy of Neonatal Nursing. (See Introductory Topics and Advanced Topics)

Appointed Faculty Champion to oversee development and implementation of a dedicated support hub "Education & Curricular Innovation Hub" for School of Nursing faculty and staff.
