What made you decide to teach at Marquette?

I had lived in Ohio for over 6 years, and commuting back to Wisconsin where my family lived got old.  I really liked Dr. Callahan and her vision for the College of Nursing.  I wanted to be part of faculty efforts to grow the research enterprise and support the research development of junior faculty and doctoral students. I have grown to hate I-94, but fortunately, Dr. Topp and other faculty give me plenty of work I can do at home so I do not have to come in 5 days a week.

What are your research interests?

My program of research addresses the pathobiology of illness symptoms, including fever, anorexia, and fatigue.

Something to brag in addition to nursing research

Tennis--I am an avid member of USTA recreational leagues and will play whenever and where ever I can.  I also love to travel with my daughters.  We try to do one big city a year, and this year we may try the wine country--fewer options for high end shopping!  This year is the first time in over 20 years I do not have to go-to-work over the summer.

Home-made raspberry jam---I make terrific raspberry jam from berries grown in my back yard.  I enjoy sharing it with my neighbors now that my kids have all moved away.

Retirement plans
When they change the lock on my office door, I will know it is time to quit. I do really enjoy teaching and reading, revising, and critiquing grant applications and manuscripts and will  probably continue to do it even after I retire.
