I am a lifelong learner with a passion for helping others to reach their potential. Being a nurse of 15 years, I have found joy in a lot of patient education, new hire training, and in-services for my colleagues!
My joy of nursing and learning has developed with the unexpected gift of content breakdown. I found that I didn't study the way my peers did, but I was able to achieve high scores and test out of courses within about a month.
This unconventional talent continues with my junior year as a BSN student at Chamberlain College of Nursing. Thus far, I have earned a place on the Dean's list while being a mother to my girls and working full time while maintaining an on-call schedule.
My unique perspective regarding how our brains learn comes from addressing my patients' learning needs and my own educational journey . I've dedicated my life to the service of others, and I have a passion for sharing the gifts I've been given to overcome my educational struggles.
At first, I started tutoring because I was able to apply my study skills to course content, and it felt great. Now, guiding others to their own success is a labor of love. Not only do I have unique and highly effective study skills, but I'm also sensitive to the needs of students with language barriers, cognitive considerations, difficulty with executive functioning, test anxiety, and so much more.
Just like every door will open with the right key, so will an eager mind with the right tools. My journey is proof of that.
