With a 50 year history of pediatric nursing, I have had the privilege to care for children and their families in multiple health care settings. After earning an Associate Degree in Nursing from Purdue University in 1967, I have continued to be a life-long learner and earned my PhD in Nursing Research from the University of Texas Health Science Center. My passion is caring for vulnerable populations of children. Therefore as a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner I developed a nurse-run school based health center for high risk teens in San Antonio, Texas. At that time I worked to obtain grants from multiple agencies to create HIV prevention programs and to meet the multiple needs of this population. I have taught pediatrics and pharmacology in both undergraduate and graduate nursing programs.
