The Allen School is (to me):
The Allen School has become my new “home” where I can continue to realize my passion each day, helping students enter into the health care field.
My academic/medical interests are:
I love to teach medical terminology and clinical skills to the medical assistants. I believe these are the core of their occupation.
Some of the jobs I have had in my lifetime include:
Clinical Medical Assistant, Cardiopulmonary Technologist, Dean of Education, Director of Academic Affairs, and if you really want to know I was a fill in bartender for my husband’s restaurants and clubs.
The best thing about being an instructor is:
I think my best thing about being an instructor is to find things that excite the students and when they tell me that “Learning is Fun”. Then I know I am capturing their attention and making the information meaningful for them.
When I am not in the classroom or on campus I can be found:
At my computer developing my next textbook.
Movies I can watch over and over:
Gone with the Wind, and any musical “oldie” with dancing; preferably black and white with Astaire and Rogers.
Favorite TV shows:
Ghost Adventures and anything on the Discovery Channel
Websites I visit daily:
Linked-In and You Tube
Favorite area restaurants:

Coolest things I have ever done:
Swimming with the dolphins in the Bahamas; touring the Smithsonian Museums in Washington, DC; visiting the Denver Zoo when Klondike and Snow were in the newborn nursery (twin polar bears).
Places I have lived:
Dairy farm in Little Meadows, Pennsylvania the first 13 years of my life and Phoenix, Arizona to present
