She is a volunteer psychiatric provider in Jacksonville, Florida, at Mission House which serves the homeless and uninsured population. I also serve on the Tom Coughlin Jay Fund Board. This organization is committed to “being there,” for families with children battling childhood cancer. I am a visiting fellow at Edgewood College in Madison, Wisconsin and have accompanied nursing students to Cambodia on four occasions for international nursing experiences.
