Dr. Goree is recognized on the Advanced Practice Registry as a Clinical Nurse Specialist (CNS) in case management and Nurse Practitioner (NP) in family medicine. She is certified by the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners, member of the Sigma Theta Tau Nursing Honor Society, and has published in the Journal for Specialists in Pediatric Nursing. Areas of professional practice include emergency nursing and family practice.

Most recently, Dr. Goree actively served as one of six vision team members to conceptualize and develop an initial framework for what will become the Community Uplift Project (CUP). At CUP our vision is to inspire and empower people to meet their full potential in God’s plan through the use of outreach, ministry, and education. Instrumental in this development process was a community assessment performed (under the direction of Dr. Goree) by pre-licensure BSN students at CCU. This was a great opportunity for students to not only learn necessary nursing skills in the context of real world application, but to be able to contribute to something with immediate as well as eternal significance. Dr. Goree continues to look for ways to integrate learning and service in her classrooms and to empower students to enact change through Christ in their own communities.
