As the Professor and Associate Dean for Research at Florida State University, I wish to express my interest in applying for SNRS Vice President. I’ve completed several leadership programs from prestigious organizations, such as Society of Behavioral Medicine Leadership Institute and American Association of College of Nursing (AACN)-Wharton Executive Leadership Institute, and I have been continuously involved in the SNRS activities. I have served as SNRS Grant Director, SNRS Succession Planning and Nominations Committee member, and Chair of the SNRS Aging/Gerontology RIIG. At the national level I have served as a National Advisory Board member in the Department of Veterans Affairs, American Academy of Nursing’s Edge Runners National Advisory Council, American Nurses Association’s National Commission to Address Racism in Nursing, and Chair of the Long-Term Care Section at the International Association of Gerontology and Geriatrics World Congress. For research activities, I have been continuously funded since 2011 as a principal investigator, including NIH R01 funding and produced more than 70 peer-reviewed publications. I have served as a grant reviewer at several levels, including the National Institute on Health, Department of Defense, and Department of Veterans Affairs. I have also served as the Editor-in-Chief for Asian/Pacific Island Nursing Journal, Editor for the Frontiers in Human Neuroscience Brain Function for Symptom Management Section, Associate Editor for the Frontiers in Pain Research, and Guest Editor for the Journal of Clinical Medicine. Additionally, I have extensive mentoring experience in professional development for students, and postdoctoral fellows across nursing and medical school programs.
I fully embrace SNRS’s mission to advance nursing research, and my experiences in various leadership positions will position me well to help propel SNRS’s vision to lead transformation of health outcomes through nursing research.
