Good Morning San Jac Family,

Dr. DeBose earned her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts and her Master of Science and Doctorate of Philosophy in Education from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Dr. DeBose has more than 20 years of nursing experience and has worked in a variety of positions/roles including parish nurse, prevention specialist, grant reviewer/writer, minority health officer, community health educator, associate researcher, professor, clinical coordinator, program director and campus dean of nursing. Dr. DeBose has received several awards including the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction Award, the Women’s Health & Aging: Clinical Scientist Development Award and the UMOJA Excellence in the Village Award.

I also have the pleasure of announcing Ms. Christie Stanfield as the new Sr. Administrative Assistant for the Associate Degree Nursing (ADN)-Transition Program on the South Campus. Christie has been with the college for about six years, having started out in enrollment services. She previously served as a part-time staff member for the Natural Science and Health Science Division office. Christie has a wide range of experience and is a systemic thinker who pays attention to detail. She also has a big smile and a great laugh.
