19-20 Dual Credit Poster for Ivy Tech Bo

I teach at both Fishers High School and HSE as a Health Careers (CNA) and Health Careers Exploration instructor. I am a Registered Nurse and earned my BS in Nursing from Indiana University and a MS in Nursing Education from Indiana Wesleyan University. I love teaching both classes and enjoy seeing the students become more confident in their skills and gain new knowledge every day! Outside of school, my husband and I enjoy watching our 5 children play sports. We love to camp, travel, and fish! Aside from the kids, we keep busy with our 3 dogs, 3 cats, turtle, and sugar glider.
