Forensic nurse examiner
Memorial Hospital, University of Colorado Health
Colorado Springs, Colorado
I have been a registered nurse for 20 years, a forensic nurse examiner for 10 years and have a degree in psychology. I am currently working as a state instructor for the SANE/SAFE project and teach SANE nurses across the state of Colorado on topics such as how to perform a medical forensic exam, testifying as an expert witness and program sustainability. I am presently involved in 3 research studies-,including the Women's Health Study (looks at the effects of sexual assault on the body), a rapid DNA study and a non-fatal strangulation study. It is my passion to continue to serve these vulnerable populations and educate our community partners. I hope to enroll in a Forensic Master's program in the near future.
