Currently I am the lead faculty for the course Pharmacology in Nursing Practice and have also taught the following courses: Principles of Nursing, Health Assessment, and Medical Surgical Nursing.  In addition, I am a board-certified family nurse practitioner and work at a community health center in Brooklyn. I used to work as an educator at New York Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital prior joining the academia full time in 2016.  I have future plans to continue my education in the field of Pharmaceutical Sciences.
