Grace enjoys teaching clients as well as fellow medical professionals. She has served as an adjunct lab faculty at George Mason University for four years.

While working at the Acute Pulmonary Unit, Inova Heart and Vascular System, Grace sought to learn more about how to help prevent her patients from returning to the hospital, which gave her an opportunity to return to George Mason University and earn her Doctor of Nurse Practice (DNP) degree in the Family Nurse Practitioner program. She was awarded the DNP Scholarship and Leadership Award.
