I am a nurse practitioner and have been with the BU Student Health Services since 1978. The last several years I was the director of nursing. I have had lots of experience in caring for young adults, with five children, two foster children, and seven grandchildren of my own. My home has always had an open-door policy for my children and their friends. My specialty is women’s health, though I am equally comfortable with the men of the college community. My focus has been to help students grow in knowledge and strength to make healthy choices in their lives. I like to remind the students that a well body, mind, and spirit work together. My personal interests are gardening and reading. Working at BU has allowed me to visit other countries and to learn of other cultures through the students as they talk of home and family. Thank you all for sharing your lives with me. My message to all of you is: “Live life simply. Love with respect. Share what you have. Give generously of yourself and remember to laugh a lot.”
