Hi! I'm Shelley and I LOVE to help students learn! I am a nurse and an educator! I can take tough topics and make them easy to understand-- I helped a family member bounce back from a TWO grade-level deficit in math and reading just by teaching her some great study skills and breaking down difficult subjects using examples she could understand. Learning is for life, and educating is my passion! I'm enthusiastic, imparting fun and humor into things that one may find otherwise mundane.
I'm a masters degreed Registered Nurse with experience in the ICU, telemetry, cariolopulmonary, nephrology, urology, oncology, and primary care. I graduated from DePaul University with Presidential Distinction, and I was a full time professor at the College of Nursing at Purdue; now adjunct.
In addition to hands on patient care and educating, I have managed large scale outpatient medical practices in a variety of specialty areas for over 20 years.
I love what I do, and I'm here to help, so let's get started!
Undergraduate Degree: Columbia College-Chicago - Bachelor in Arts, Business Administration and Management
Graduate Degree: DePaul University - Master of Science, Nursing (RN)
Before the world of academia, I was an opera and musical theater major in college! I love to sing and perform, which is probably why I never found it difficult to engage students in subjects I love like science, human biology, and nursing! I am a strong academic writer and am fluent in APA formatting. I also love to do creative writing, and I am currently working on a website for tips and tricks of the nursing world! I sing mostly, but also play the piano and the French horn. I truly have both sides of my brain!
