I graduated in the very first nursing class of Mercer County Community College in the 1970's; then transferred to Richard Stockton College for a bachelor's degree in nursing.  During this time I worked at St Francis Hospital in Trenton, NJ, Deborah Heart and Lung Center, Ocean County Health Department, and Southern Ocean County Hospital.  My clinical experience during these years included medical-surgical nursing, peri-operative nursing, home health nursing and various supervisory roles.  Upon receipt of a Masters Degree in Primary Health Care of the Elderly, I began work as a nursing professor at Richard Stockton College, and worked as a gerontological nurse practitioner for the Veterans Administration and Atlantic Regional Medical Center.

Eight years of traveling to and from Rutgers University culminated in my Doctoral Degree.  Curriculum development was my focus and my doctoral dissertation analyzed the difference in those RN's who return to college for the bachelor's degree and those who do not.  2009 represents my 28th year at Richard Stockton College and I have taught in all three programs, RN-BSN, undergraduate and graduate.

Following Hurricane Katrina I travelled to the New Orleans area with the American Red Cross; and cared for those with medical needs who had lost their homes due to the storm.
My daughter has followed in my footsteps and is a nurse in a stem cell transplant unit. I am very proud of the wonderful nurse she has become!

I graduated from Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida where I majored in Biology and Theater Art. I then earned a PhD at the University of Pennsylvania in Pathology. During this time I had an NIH grant administered through the Philadelphia Zoological Gardens where I did research and postmortems on all types of animals. My doctorial research was on the relationship of psychosocial stimuli and Cancer in mice. I continue to be interested in the relationship of psychosocial stimuli and the immune system. 


Presently I am a Councilwoman for the Borough of Beach Haven. I recently attended The National Foundation of Woman Legislators conference in Des Moines, Iowa.


I started teaching at Stockton in 1973. In the 1980s I served as the Chairperson of the Professional Studies Division for three years. In the area of general education, I am particularly interested in International Studies. I think all students and faculty should have international experience. I take a group of students to Latin America each year; we visited Ecuador last spring. This is a rewarding experience for both the students and myself. 


I have a husband and two sons. My oldest son worked for Arnold Schwarzenegger in California and Davis Cameron and the Tory Party in London. My younger son works for a member of European Parliament in Brussels and will be starting a job with JP Morgan in October. My husband is retired from GlaxoSmithKline Pharmaceuticals in Philadelphia. I like to travel, sail, bike and read among other things.

 I began my nursing career working on a general medical/surgical floor following graduation from Atlantic Community College in 1978. After experiencing the birth of my first child, I felt compelled to work in maternal child health and for the next several years held postions as a staff nurse in nursery, postpartum and labor and delivery. I eventually decided to return for a professional nursing degree and received a Bachelor of Science in Nursing with Program Distinction from Stockton in 1995. I believe I received the best preparation for an advanced degree in Nursing from completeing my degree at Stockton. I continued my nursing education and obtained a Master of Science in Nursing and a certificate in Midwifery from the University of Pennsylvania in 1999.

My husband of 33 years and I have been living in South Jersey with our three children our entire life. I have been practicing full-scope midwifery and caring for women for for the past 11 years ,and have also had the opportunity to teach nursing as an adjuct professor at Atlantic Cape Community College. I am presently completing doctoral studies at Drexel University in Philadephia. My research interests include women’s decision making regarding mode of delivery and reduction in the rate of cesaren delivery in the United States. I am a member of Sigma Theta Tau and currently serve as the co-chair on the Nursing Research Council at Atlanticare Regional Medical Center .
