Her career is filled with many accomplished awards. One of the most notable accomplishments for her however is her teaching of health care professionals in the issues of sexual assault and domestic violence. “I love teaching new nurses about sexual assault and domestic violence. It energizes me. I moved and retired and miss the training of nurses so one way I can give back is by being a mentor for the Academy.”
