Background:
I have more than 10 years of registered nursing experience with the bulk of my experience in emergency medicine. I have worked primarily in critical access medical facilities ranging in location, allowing me the opportunity to provide care to patients from a variety of cultural backgrounds.
I live on a small ranch (the 13-12 ranch) located in Sebeka with my husband Jamie, two dogs (Chibi and Sally), multiple horses, cattle, and one Miss-Kitty. I grew up in Cedar, MN, and graduated from St. Francis High School. I loved growing up in rural Minnesota and could not imagine living anywhere else other than in the country.

What inspired you to get into medicine?
I love medicine, and I like to do what I can to help others. Working in the medical field provides the opportunity to do what I love and provide needed mental health services to people in rural communities. To say that there is a need for psychiatric and mental health services in rural communities would be an understatement; I look forward to improving access to care to rural Minnesota.

Why did you choose Tri-County Health Care?
Tri-County is committed to providing individualized care and is also committed to improving the health in our rural populations. The organization continues to push for growth and expansion; I am excited to be a part of this dynamic organization.

What do you like to do in your downtime?
Jamie and I love trail riding and horse camping whenever we can. We like to keep the ranch looking good, and there is always a fencing project or some sort of ranch-related task to complete. Ultimately, I am solar powered, so any chance I can get to be out walking the dogs, riding horses, or working in the yard, I take full advantage!

What is one interesting, unique or fun thing that most people may know about you?
My compassion to help whenever possible does not stop at humans. I once used my ball cap to move tadpoles from a water hole that was rapidly drying up to a larger water hole where they would have a better chance of survival. I break for bees, frogs, and snakes while cutting grass. I will move worms off of the concrete back to the sod after a rain when things are starting to dry up. I love almost all critters and do what I can to help them survive – with the exception being spiders!!
