Saint Anselm History

I arrived at Saint Anselm College in 1982.

Professional Experience

I have experience in both pediatric and maternity nursing with maternity as my current focus. I practice as a staff nurse on an LDRP Unit and am a Childbirth Educator, teaching classes on a regular basis.

Scholarly Interests

I am currently finishing data collection on a clinical study of natural methods of lactation suppression. Future research for doctoral dissertation will focus on my interest in preparation for parenting during the first year: expectations and reality shock.
