How Your Program Is Unique Here:
Our nursing program at Crown is unique because it offers a small Biblical Bachelor nursing education in a rural setting.

I came to know Jesus as my savior in second grade.  I have enjoyed serving the Lord through camp ministries, Wednesday night clubs, Children’s church, summer missionary work, Vacation Bible School and throughout my careers

Favorite Bible Verse and Why:
Jeremiah 29:11; For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

There are so many times that we have struggles and are wondering what to do next in life.  There is no need to worry or to give up.  God has a plan for our lives.  We need to keep our eyes on Him.

Before Crown:
I continue to work in skilled nursing care on transitional care, long term care and memory care units as a floor nurse, supervisor, admission nurse, and floor manager as needed.  I am proficient in using PointClickCare.  I updated the admission process which was implemented corporate wide.

What You Enjoy Most About Teaching at Crown:
I enjoy being able to openly bring God into every situation through advising and teaching.  I grew up attending a Christian School and attending Bible College.  I am passionate about Christian education.
