Dr. Lakomy has earned distinction through her research on adult health, oncology and critical care. In addition to her work as an adjunct professor at both the State College of Florida and the University of Mary, where she teaches a research and design critique course, she has contributed her own research to various publications, including the Journal of Neuroscience Nursing, the Internet Journal of Advanced Nursing Practice and Home Health Care Services Quarterly, among others. Prior to embarking upon her professional journey, she studied nursing at Del Mar College, from which she earned an associate degree, and Corpus Christi State University, where she attained a Bachelor of Science in Nursing in 1979.

Other accomplishments to her credit include her winning of the Nightingale Award for Excellence in Education and Research, as bestowed by the University of Colorado, and her recognition as an Outstanding Teacher by the University of Texas at Tyler, for which she was a tenured professor. Though she plans to soon commence her retirement, Dr. Lakomy hopes to continue teaching graduate courses well into the future.
