I earned my Ph.D in Nursing from the School of Nursing at Kent State University in 2015. Prior to this, I completed around 12 years in career in nursing in both clinical and academic settings. Currently, I teach in the undergraduate program BSN courses in nursing. I have taught a variety of courses including physical health assessment, Medical surgical nursing, Maternity nursing, Nursing Skills Lab, Research and evidenced based practice, and Seminar in professional health nursing.
Research wise, I focus on Oncology nursing, symptom clusters, symptom management, and women’s health. I have worked on identifying symptom clusters in breast cancer patients to help this population improve their quality of life. I am currently working on cognitive training in cancer survival patients, and I am collaborating on international oncology studies. My future research focuses on identifying the effect of social support on oncology patients' psychological well-being. My research passion also helped me emerge in nursing education research. I am eager to improve the educational settings for our nursing students by providing more evidence-based research studies that show factors affecting student course evaluation across different nursing programs to help nursing faculty understand and improve their teaching to the best.
