Department of Nursing

I am a Dalton native, and Dalton State has played important roles at various stages in my life. My parents both graduated from Dalton Junior College when they began second careers while I and my four brothers were students of the Dalton Public School System. I earned my Associate of Science in Nursing from Dalton Junior College, and I have practiced primarily critical care nursing since 1984. More important to me, I met the love of my life, Jeff Richardson, on this very campus. Both of my children, Jeffery and Allie, began their college careers at Dalton State.

I earned my Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the University of West Georgia. Then, I went on to complete my Master of Science in Nursing at that same school. Many of my required courses (chemistries, statistics, and speech) were conveniently completed as a transient student here at Dalton State.

My husband and I have long been supporters of the Baptist Collegiate Ministries at Dalton State. We have also worked with students from Dalton State as we volunteer at the local Salvation Army. I am a proud promoter of the excellent, affordable, and character building education offered here at Dalton State.

I have a calling to the art and science of nursing that has helped me love my profession. I have a passion for investing in the future of young adults. It is here at Dalton State that my calling and my passion intersect. Dalton State has helped lay a firm foundation for life-long learning in my family as I pray it will in yours.
