I’m an Associate Clinical Professor/Clinical Coordinator in the DMU program in the School of Health Professions and have been here as faculty since 2007. My main interest is the transformation of college student to health professional and developing instructional strategies to support that transformation. I live in Callaway county and have three adult children, one of whom (my son, JoeRyan) is a MHS graduate of the DMU program here at Mizzou. My oldest daughter, Hali, lives in eastern Oklahoma with her family. My son and his wife live near St Louis, and my youngest daughter, Jolaina, currently lives at home to keep tabs on me. My husband, Wes, is a heavy equipment operator building natural gas pipelines.
