BIOGRAPHY

I am a tenured Senior Instructor.  My clinical background is in Child Health and Family System Nursing. Foundational to my teaching philosophy are contemporary pedagogies that require learners to be active participants, that recognize the importance of the interpersonal connections between teacher, student, and the material that is covered, and that nurture and create a learning environment where teachers act as facilitators of learning rather than gatekeepers of knowledge. The notion that learning is life-long, and where the focus of teaching is on the journey rather than on the destination.

A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops.

~ Henry Brook Adams

In addition to teaching in the classroom, I have held several educational leadership roles within the UBC Okanagan School of Nursing (including Year I Team Leader, Clinical Resource Nurse, Assistant Director Undergraduate Program and Acting Associate Director Undergraduate Program). Foundational to how I embrace the role of educational leadership is the weaving together of the following concepts: mentorship, adopting a relational stance, and transformational leadership.

A genuine leader is not a searcher of consensus but a molder of consensus.

~ Martin Luther King Jr.
