Bachelor of Science in Nursing
I graduated from Irmo High School in 1979. I earned my Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the University of South Carolina in 1983. I have been a Registered Nurse for 36 years. I have experience in the acute care setting, post acute rehab, long term care, home care, and hospice. I have done quite a bit of in-servicing and training of nurses and certified nursing assistants throughout the years. This is my fourth year at Irmo High School teaching future health professionals. I am a registered Certified Nursing Assistant instructor, an American Heart Association Basic Life Support for Health Care Professionals instructor, and an adjunct instructor with Midlands Technical College.
I have two grown children. My daughter has her Master's in Health Information Technology from USC and is a project manager for a large insurance provider. My son graduated from The Citadel and is an Air Force pilot currently stationed in Germany.
