I have been a registered nurse since 2003.  I worked as a staff nurse in a telemetry unit for a brief time and then transitioned to a position as a Case Manager for developmentally disabled individuals at a long-term residential facility from 2003 until the fall of 2009.  Upon completion of the MSN program in Spring of 2009, I accepted a position in August of 2009 at Arkansas State University School of Nursing as a full-time faculty member.  In the fall of 2010, I began serving as the Faculty Advisor for the Student Nurses Association here at the University.
