- Lead Registered Nurse, Triage
- Phone: 541-346-2770
I have been a nurse for over 40 years. I knew at the age of 6 years old that I wanted to be a nurse. I was a Candy Striper in High school,trained by the Red Cross. Upon graduating from high school, I worked at Good Samaritan Care Center as a Nurse's Aide for 1 year.
I attended LCC Nursing School and graduated as a LPN (Licensed Practical Nurse)in 1970. I worked as a LPN at Sacred Heart Hospital on the Pediatric floor from1970 to 1975 when I went to work for Eugene Hospital and clinic for a Vascular Surgeon. I was accepted into the LCC RN program in 1981 and graduated as an RN in1982. I continued to work at Eugene Hospital and Clinic. I transferred back to Sacred Heart Hospital in the Ask-A-Nurse program where I worked for almost 17 years; from the day it opened to the day it closed.I came to the UHC in April 2006. I am the lead Nurse in Triage.
In 2008 I was one of 3 recipients of the LCC Distinguished Alumni Award which I consider a honor.
I have twins; a son and a daughter. They are both in law enforcement. I have 3 grand children. I love to fish, camp, do geocaching, travel,hike, bake, shop at thrift stores and rock hunting. I love spending time with my grandchildren, kids and husband. I like to socialize and I belong to Eugene's Altair Ski and Sports Club.
I especially enjoy working with the student population and addressing their health care needs and concerns. It is very rewarding. I love theteaching aspects of my job.

I am originally from Torrance, California and was transplanted to Oregon when I was about 8 years old. I have lived in Eugene, Oregon for about 30 years now and I love my Ducks! I received my Associates Degree in nursing at Lane Community College in 1998. From there I worked over 11 years for a local Oregon Medical Group (OMG) Pediatric Clinic as a Triage and back office nurse. I continue to work at the “OMG After Hours Clinic” periodically as a Triage nurse.
I came to the UO Health Center a little over 2 years ago and work in the Triage department and occasionally as a back office nurse. I love the teaching aspect of my job. Educating students about their health and seeing them become their own heath care advocate is very rewarding. I believe education empowers students to take responsibility of their own personal health so they are more productive, self reliant and confident individuals.
My interests are many and they seem to increase daily. I love sports; football, baseball/softball, and volleyball are my favorites. I would rather see a live game or play the sport than watch it on TV. Camping, hiking, travel, photography, movies, dancing, the beach, scrapbooking, beading, knitting, music/concerts, any new experiences and the list goes on. I have 2 daughters and one of them is a current student at UO!
