During her career she was involved in teaching medical students, nurse practitioner students, and helped with teaching medical assistant and nursing students. Her students recognized her as “Teacher of the Year” Awards in the past, and many of them have maintained contact as they have progressed into their own careers.

She has enjoyed serving the Richmond area and has been honored that so many have placed their health care and that of their families in her hands.
