Biography:

I hold a Master of Science in Public Health degree from Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT), Kenya and Bachelor of Science in Nursing from University of Nairobi, Kenya. I am a lecturer at the University of Nairobi, College of Health Sciences, School of Nursing Sciences and Community Health Nursing Department, where I am also registered for my PhD. I am very gladly a cohort 6 CARTA fellow. I have two published articles in peer-reviewed journals, one academic module in environmental education and has also presented my masters research work in conferences. I am in the process of doing more publications from my current PhD research work. I have over seven years of University teaching experience especially in community health nursing, both theory and practical. I have previously taught as a lecturer at Regina Pacis University College, a constituent college of Catholic University of Eastern Africa, where I acted as the students’ welfare officer (equivalent to Dean of students) for over three years, as well as Presbyterian University of East Africa and Daystar universities, Kenya. Prior to joining the teaching profession, I worked as a nurse manager for about ten years in various hospitals in Kenya where my desire to develop competent health professionals was further ignited propelling me to the teaching career. I have a wide range of experience in management, teaching and clinical instruction as well as supervising, coordinating and leading implementation of quality health services in both government health facilities and faith based organizations. I have a passion to see healthy communities. This has seen me participate in organizing various community health-promoting services/activities such as medical camps and health check-ups which has impacted even the less privileged in the community. My ultimate goal is to fully utilize my potential, skills and experience to enhance the health of our communities and for better health care provision through training, mentoring and nurturing competent and reliable health care providers as a team player.
