Biography

Teaching the next generation of psychiatric-mental health nurse practitioners is the love of my life. It is such a privilege to be part of their education and watch the transformation of a registered nurse into a new psychiatric provider.  Psychiatric-Mental Health nursing has been my life since 1978 and has taken me all over the world. My top five most treasured career highlights are: 1) serving as a consultant to the Israeli Ministry of Health and Division of Psychiatric Nursing between 1999-2006; 2) being inducted into the American Academy of Nursing in 2008; 3) serving as the Director of the PMHNP program at the Yale University School of Nursing from 2009-2014; 4) being elected President of The American Psychiatric Nurses Association in 2010; and, 5) being named Psychiatric Nurse of the Year by the APNA in 2018. It is a joy to share my experiences as well as to continue to learn from my students.
