Personal profile

I am an assistant professor at the University of Minnesota School of Nursing. My program of research considers the longitudinal health of refugees post-resettlement and the intergenerational effects of trauma and torture. Prior to my appointment at the University, I served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Africa, a human rights intern in Colombia, and worked clinically as a nurse on the inpatient unit of the Johns Hopkins Hospital AIDS service. In conjunction with my faculty position at the University, I am a sexual assault nurse examiner, serving survivors of sexual assault. I teach in the undergraduate and graduate nursing programs at the UMN School of Nursing.
