Since that time she been in a leadership role on numerous other grants and projects having to do with leadership, quality, clinical placement and education as well as interprofessional teams. She is a professionally prepared coach and has responsibility for coaching that is integral to many Center projects. Healthcare education is a theme that has been woven throughout her career, having taught, mostly clinically, ADN, BSN, ND, NP and Nurse Midwifery students as well as other health professionals. Facilitations and direct teaching in a virtual environment with ECHO Colorado is a newer responsibility. Educational preparation includes an MS in Parent Child Nursing from the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center. A decade later she completed a post Masters degree certification in Nurse-Midwifery and practiced full scope nurse midwifery and women’s health care for more than ten years as an Advanced Practice Nurse and Certified Nurse-Midwife. She has been intimately involved in all aspects of several grants at The Center, including curriculum development, writing, collaborative endeavors and actual teaching. Out of the first grant there were six published articles where she was an author that aided in the dissemination of this successful model.
