Most of my clinical experience is in Maternal/Child Nursing and I have been employed as a staff nurse, traveling nurse, transport nurse, nurse educator, Maternal/Child Clinical Nurse Specialist, Pediatric Clinical Nurse Specialist, and Neonatal Nurse Practitioner. My research interests include contemplative practice and pedagogy, self-efficacy, self-transcendence and stress reduction.
