Dr. Williams has been a nurse for 5 decades and practiced in several states and in both Europe and Korea in military communities.

She has enjoyed practicing in hospitals, schools, and community settings. She has a special interest in teaching student success and believes that nursing students need accessible professors. She enjoys a range of interests including family, church, gardening, biking, and just being out of doors.
