Dr. Goss resides in Northern California and currently practices as a women's health nurse practitioner in a clinic in San Francisco. She states, "My passion and career have always been advocating the health care of women and children." This was illustrated with Dr. Goss's dissertation that explored violence against women. She continues to champion the cause of empowering women via the health care arena, to aid the women’s movement by assessment, awareness and treatment of domestic violence. Dr. Goss is the coordinator of the Parent Child Clinical Nurse Specialist role option. She is the course content expert for the CNS curriculum. Dr. Goss is the content expert for the Women’s Health and Pediatric portion of the FNP curriculum. She also participates in graduate research, core classes and electives involving women’s issues.
Besides domestic violence, Dr. Goss's other research interests encompass birth outcomes, surgical menopause, and medical abortion. She is currently collaborating with Dr. Welch on a project examining outcomes and evaluation of online courses.
