She is consistently tracking NP legislation and ready to engage the NP community at large for advocacy efforts…Within education, MJ has left her mark on students and faculty. Described by a colleague as a ‘fabulous but tough teacher,’ MJ always pushed her students to be the best clinicians possible…She also brought real clinical experience to her educator role, imparting her wisdom to students and for curriculum development.
