I’m a Registered Nurse and teach in the undergraduate program at MRU. I am interested in the ways that arts, humanities and engaging in creative processes can enhance the education of health care professionals. I support meaningful participation of patients and families in working to reduce barriers and upend harmful hierachies embedded in the health care system. I’m interested in listening to stories - ones that challenge and inspire me. I paint as a way to express my creativity and curiosity.
The practice of nursing, undergraduate nursing education and curriculum. I’m good at connecting people with each other re: mutual professional interests.
