West Virginia University
PhD Student

I am currently in the PhD Nursing Program at West Virginia University. I graduated with an associate degree in nursing from Northern Virginia Community College in 1982, completed my BSN in 2004 from the Eastern Mennonite University, and received an MSN from James Madison University in 2006. Throughout my nursing career, I have focused on women's health issues. My research passion is breastfeeding practices of women in rural populations. To foster continual professional growth, I also teach undergraduate students at James Madison University School of Nursing.
