About

Degrees

  • PhD (Nursing), Wayne State University, Detroit, Michigan (1993)
  • MS (Public Health) University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, Minnesota (1975)
  • BSN Augustana College, Sioux Falls, South Dakota, (1972)

My clinical expertise is in the area of community health nursing. This has included experience in rural, suburban, and urban settings in the US and Canada, and faith community (parish) nursing. Previous academic positions were in St. Louis, Missouri and London, Ontario. Past administrative positions include: Assistant Dean, Graduate Programs; Associate Dean, Undergraduate Programs; Director, Quality Assurance & Enhancement. 


Research

The main focus of my research involves developing interventions to enhance resilience (special interest in the connection of spiritual well-being to resilience)/promote health (holistic health including spiritual well-being) in individuals (of all ages), families, and communities. A secondary research area involves developing effective, evidence-based teaching/learning strategies for healthcare professional education.
