I am a Professor and Associate Chair in the School of Nursing at Old Dominion University (ODU) and Professor at EVMS in Family Medicine where I have practiced clinically for 32 years. I have published over 60 articles and served as investigator on 37 grants totaling over $21 million focusing on new models of care such as telehealth to provide care to the underserved. I was the lead author on the NONPF position paper on educating Nurse Practitioners in Telehealth. I am also a national consultant in the area of telehealth education and published a book, “Telehealth Essentials for Advanced Practice Nursing” in June 2020. I serve as the Academic Director of the Center for Telehealth Innovation, Education, and Research (C-TIER) at ODU. In 2014, I received the SCHEV Outstanding Faculty Award, the highest honor provided to faculty in Virginia.
I have over 35-years of advanced practice nursing experience and am an Associate Professor in nursing at ODU where I teach in the Doctor of Nursing Practice Program. I am the Director of ODU’s Center for Telehealth Innovation, Education, and Research (C-TIER). The center serves as a telehealth learning hub and research center for the East Coast Region of the U.S. I am also the clinical manager for the Telehealth program at CHKD. I have served on the American Nurses Association task force for technology and was elected to the Center for Telehealth and eHealth Law (CTeL) Advisory Board.
I have worked with the ODU School of Nursing since 2010 with a focus on telehealth education programming and development. I have a master’s degree in Exercise Science and Wellness from ODU. As C-TIER Telehealth Manager, my role is to coordinate all telehealth program activities and track program outcomes. My previous experience in a variety of healthcare venues and roles has afforded me insight into industry challenges and strengths. I have used this knowledge in our educational programming and grown along with the telehealth industry as it developed from a “could be convenient” to a now “absolutely needed” healthcare delivery vehicle.
