Before joining the faculty at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin as Professor and the Research Chair in the Nursing of Children in 2003, Dr. Sawin had over 40 years experience as an educator, researcher and clinician. She came from Virginia Commonwealth University where for the last 16 years she was a faculty, department chair, and PI on several training grants for graduate students including an innovative weekend FNP program that provided opportunities for many rural nurses to become primary care providers. Previous to her time at VCU, Dr. Sawin was a clinical faculty at the University of Wisconsin-Madison where she was one of the team of faculty that developed the PNP concentration and held a joint appointment as a Senior Clinical Nurse Specialist/Nurse Practitioner at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater. In this position, Dr. Sawin had direct care and program develop responsibilities with a focus on the population of college students with chronic health conditions. She was also a Robert Wood Johnson Primary Care Faculty fellow. In this program she completed course work to extend her certification as a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner (PNP) to a family focus as a Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP). In this fellowship she focused on women with disabilities Dr. Sawin has practiced both as a PNP and FNP in Migrant Health in Wisconsin and on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, in school and college health, as well as in public health and specialty pediatric clinics. For the last 15 years her practice and research has focused on individuals with Spina Bifida and their families. Dr. Sawin has a particular interest in adolescents, women with disabilities, and the transition to young adulthood for those with chronic conditions. Her program of research has addressed health, adaptation, self-management and quality of life outcomes in individuals with disabilities and their families as well as the risk and protective factors (individual, family and environmental) that are associated with these outcomes. Current funded work focuses on adolescents with neurological conditions, specifically spina bifida and cancer. Previous studies have included adolescents with spinal cord injury, diabetes, cancer, and epilepsy as well as young adult women with cerebral palsy and spinal cord injury.
