Institutional Service and Responsibilities

As the Clinical Director of the Hart Simulation Lab, my service and responsibility revolves around the men and women who are working to become professional nurses, emergency management professionals,law enforcement professionals, etc. My focus is on quality experiential learning opportunities grounded in patient-centered care, evidence-based practice, safety, interdisciplinary collaboration, leadership, and professionalism across many different care delivery models. My focus is on providing these student-centered experiential opportunities in a safe realistic environment. I collaborate with other areas of study throughout the college to provide access to the Hart Simulation Lab facilitate the inclusion of experiential learning opportunities as appropriate in their specific fields of study.

My home is in Roan Mountain, Tennessee. I have three children, six grandchildren, and one great-grandchild. When I have free time I love to read, listen to bluegrass and gospel music, and travel.
