committed to paying it forward. I have mentored both BSN and MSN/PNP students from the U of Illinois and recently received the Outstanding Pediatric Clinical Preceptor from the University of Illinois. Acknowledging the nurse’s role in clinical research, I applied for and was awarded an APHON Evidence Based Practice grant in 2018 to assess adolescent preference for Nasogastric vs Gastrostomy tube feedings during cancer treatment. Finally, the importance of advocacy as a nurse has compelled me to bring the voice of our patients and colleagues to the community. To that end, I have presented to the Illinois School District and the Kiwanis Club. I have spoken on the importance of self-care to the Ronald McDonald House staff and help facilitate a Parent Support Group for Candlelighters.
Thank you for your consideration.
