The Women’s Health Specialty Practice Group (SPG) offers a unique opportunity to interactively collaborate with colleagues who share interest or clinical expertise in women’s health. As an SPG member, you’ll have access to a cutting-edge, online forum where you can engage in discussions, document sharing and knowledge exchange with fellow nurse practitioners (NPs). Come learn, share and help progress the development of theory and practice in women’s health.
It is my pleasure and an honor to be serving in the role as co-chair of the new AANP Community-Women’s Health Specialty Practice Group.
I am a family NP with a strong background and experience in women’s health, including urogynecology and primary women’s health care, as well as OB/Gyn practice. I am an adjunct clinical instructor at Rutgers University, teaching adult-gerontology primary care to NP students.
I am excited to network and share best practices with all of you, whether it be in person at AANP conferences or through this online forum. I want to personally welcome all interested NPs to the AANP Women's Health Community. I hope you find the content and networking both valuable and insightful!
I am a veteran women's health NP (WHNP) from the Columbus, Ohio, area with more than 24 years of experience in sexual and reproductive primary care. I am a proud alumni of The Ohio State University, BSN ’96 and MS ’98, and received my DNP from Case Western Reserve University in 2016. I was honored to be inducted as an AANP Fellow in 2021. I previously served a three-year term on the board of directors of the National Association of Nurse Practitioners in Women's Health and co-founded and led their Academic Program Leader Committee. I am currently the chair of the Program Director Specialty Interest Group for the National Organization for Nurse Practitioner Faculties. I am an associate professor of clinical nursing at The Ohio State University and director of the DNP program. My scholarship focuses on the role of WHNPs with male sexual and reproductive health, the role of the DNP as well as curriculum and evaluation for the advanced practice registered nurse and DNP.
