West Virginia University PhD
Home Waynesburg PA United States


In May of 2012, I graduated from Waynesburg University with my Bachelor of Science in Nursing. Since 2012, I have been a practicing nurse, specializing in cardiac and medical-surgical nursing. With a passion for teaching, I began pursuing my Master of Science in Nursing with a concentration in education at Waynesburg University. Since graduating with my master’s degree in August of 2015, I have transitioned into academia as an Instructor of Nursing at Waynesburg University. This position has led me to pursue my PhD in Nursing at West Virginia University. My research interest stems from my practice and focuses on the chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) population. I am specifically interested in studying the cyclical relationship between COPD, depression, and smoking cessation.
