I joined the NN2 Board because I saw an opportunity to give back and make a difference. The NN2 Board provides an excellent opportunity to positively affect change and support the organization as it works to provide networking opportunities and elevate the level of instruction in health sciences, causes that I am passionate about. Being a part of the Board of Directors provides me an opportunity to use my specific knowledge, skills and expertise to really make a difference in the impact of the organization and its future.

I originally joined NN2 because I saw the value of an organization that could support me in my role as a new Associate Dean of Health Science.  The Deans and AD's at my school could assist me with the institutional necessities but I needed support with health care educational specifics, and I found that with NN2.  My decision to support NN2 as a board member grew out of my desire to share knowledge and collaborate with others in health care education. 

The collegial support I have experienced over the past 7 years with NN2 (5 as a board member) has been professionally enriching through the networking and growth opportunities that are part of the organization.

My first exposure to NN2 was in 2015 when our VP for Healthcare asked me to attend the annual meeting as a new dean. That meeting provided me with networking opportunities and ideas that I was able to take back to my campus and immediately put to use. I have had the honor of presenting at the annual meeting a few times, and I have served on the board since 2019. So often as healthcare education leaders we are faced with situations and decisions that our fellow faculty simply cannot assist due to lack of context. NN2 provides a vast network of professionals who have the necessary context and experience to help support and troubleshoot your way to success.

I joined NN2 in the spring of 2015.  I had just accepted a deanship in health education at a two-year college.  The knowledge, expertise, and advice from other more experienced healthcare deans was invaluable to my success.  Having support from people who had experienced and were experiencing a lot of the same things that I was encountering helped me to lead with more confidence.  I stay engaged to help shape the future of healthcare education.  I am honored to serve as the President Elect in 2023-2024.
