I created Healthcare University in 2017.

I spent my career as a healthcare educator, but was forced to retire when I was diagnosed with heart failure in 2013. I was in my early forties and this started me on a journey I never expected. I spent the next several years fighting for my life, while managing an already difficult life as a single mom.

Eventually my heart improved, life became easier as my children graduated and left the nest to live their own lives.

I knew there was an opportunity to impact others through my experience. So I decided to create Healthcare University to educate, empower, and support those in my community. My mission is to increase health literacy by creating elearning courses and connecting communities so education opportunities are accessible to all.

I try to live by my values everyday. I value to be service to others. I feel it is my responsibility to give back to my community. We all can make a positive impact in this world.

I my free time I enjoys spending time at the Oregon Coast, playing tennis, photography, time with loved ones, and my goldendoodle puppy, Daisy.
