I have been awarded three NIH/AACN grants for the All of US Research program and was responsible for leading and coordinated events in Shreveport, Lafayette, Baton Rouge, Ruston and Monroe between state institutions. I also work with Nursing and Rad Sci. faculty on iPad technology, ATI proctored testing application development, and ExamSoft Secure Assessment Software.  I chair the CONSAH Scientific Review Committee (SRC) to assist both students and faculty bring their research interest to life.
