Ms. Stephenson, Health–Medical Office instructorInstructor – Mrs. Margaret A. Stephenson

As a fourth generation Greek-American who still speaks/reads the language, I love my culture and that of my students. Psychiatric nursing was my favorite part of nursing, which has made me emphasize to my students to look at people in a different light. My faith, family, friends, and career have made me who I am today, and I wouldn’t change a thing!
