Associate Professor, Staff CRNA
Samford University, Children's of Alabama
This is my 42nd RN year, 30th year at Children's of Alabama with 26 of those as a CRNA and 8th year with the Samford University nurse anesthesia program. Neonatal critical care and transport were my pre-anesthesia loves. I am a UAB nurse anesthesia grad with an MSN from Samuel Merritt and a DNP from UAB. My DNP project compared the estimation of ETT cuff pressure in children by auscultation to direct manometer measurements. My manuscript entitled "Evidence Based Use of Cuffed Endotracheal Tubes in Children" was published in the Journal of PeriAnesthesia Nursing in 2018. Aside from peds airway management, my other main interests are related to anesthesia effects on the developing brain, trauma/coagulopathy and evidence based practice.
My husband and I are blessed with 4 grown children, 3 grandchildren and 2 pups. We spend most of our free time at our second home on the lake, complete with all the fun toys. God is good - all the time!
