I teach Introduction to Medical Assisting at J. Everett Light Career Center. I earned my Bachelor's of Science in Nursing at Indiana University and have been a Registered Nurse since 1999. I worked many years as a labor and delivery nurse, as well as a nurse in an OB/GYN office. I love teaching young minds that are eager to become health care providers. I see many students that have the capacity to be exceptional providers to our community and have empathy for all around them. Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two girls. I enjoy being outdoors, camping, gardening and watching my girls play softball in the summer and reading when I have time.

I am one of the instructors for the Certified Nursing Assistant program at Fishers High School and also teach Medical Assisting at J. Everett Light Career Center. I am a registered nurse as well as a certified massage therapist. I enjoy working with students to help them choose their career pathway. I am passionate about the medical field & hope to inspire students pursue their future goals. Outside of school, I enjoy cooking, traveling, & spending time with my family & friends.
