My publishing experience includes numerous peer-reviewed articles on chemotherapy and biotherapy, five book chapters including a chapter for the Joint Commission Resources on Closed System Transfer Devices (CSTDs), and having served as editor for a book on BMT. I have presented nationally and internationally at nursing and pharmacy conferences on a variety of topics and have been the principal investigator in two published nursing research studies, with the results of a wipe test project currently being drafted.


Involvement with the Oncology Nursing Society includes having served as Coordinator for the Chemotherapy Special Interest Group, 5 years as contributing editor for ONS Connect, 5 years on the OCN test development committee, and 5 years on the BMT Certification committee including 2 years as Committee Chair. I am currently a reviewer for the Clinical Journal of Oncology Nursing.
