I have 15 years teaching in academia in undergraduate and graduate nursing programs. As an experienced nurse scientist/researcher, I developed the role of Nurse Researcher at RWJUH Somerset campus, Sommerville, N.J. My area of expertise and program of research is focused on women's health issues in vulnerable populations, primarily depression and postpartum depression in Latina and African American women; however I have conducted research on many other topics as well. I have presented extensively, both via podium and poster, at professional nursing conferences locally, regionally,nationally, and internationally. I currently mentor doctoral students in the development of their phenomenon of interest from inception of idea, development of the research proposal, data collection, data analysis, and presentation of their completed research got their proposal and final defense. My current research, in progress, is titled "The Faces of Incivility: Faculty to Faculty Bullying in Nursing Academia. I also am an experienced author and presenter, both podium and poster, at professional conferences.
