Areas of Interest
I enjoy teaching Emergency Medical topics to my volunteer fire district responders as well as responding to Jasper Station 2 from home for medical/fire/accident calls. If I can help my volunteers become the best responders for medical calls, I feel like I have completed my goal as their main EMS educator.
Outside of work, I enjoy fishing, hunting, rock-hounding, foraging for wild edibles, hiking, and gardening.
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!
