Get FOCUSED, Get Moving, Get FINISHED.

Serving Doctoral of Nursing Practice Students to help you Accentuate your Academic Voice.


You have a voice on your DNP journey – let me mentor you and tailor the voice academically. I have focused on helping students move in spite of the narratives they may have been given.

As a former DNP program chair, and as a DNP project chair who has successfully directly helped 400+ students with their DNP projects, I want to help take you through to understand the nuances of the DNP program and DNP project. While you have formal chairs and committee members attached with you on your journey, you sometimes need someone from the outside who can give you insight, someone to relax and talk about the process and the project, and someone who can help you keep it moving focused, and finish faster.
