What inspired you to get into medicine?
My mom is a nurse, so I was always around the nursing aspect of medicine. I love working with people, so I went into nursing. It wasn’t until I worked in the ICU, ER and recovery room up in Fargo that I realized I wanted to go into anesthesia. I love complexities of things and that drove me to pursue anesthesia and the ability to be more hands-on with procedures.

What is the most important factor in a patient/provider relationship?
Trust. They need to trust what I say and that I will perform my job to the best of my abilities.

What do you like to do in your downtime?
Most of my downtime is spent with my four daughters. We all love to draw and do arts and crafts. I feel very fortunate that my daughters also love sports and outside activities. Going for walks and bike rides has become a daily thing for us. Canada is one of our favorite spots to go fishing with my husband, John!

What is one interesting, unique or fun thing that most people may not know about you?
I played college basketball for the University of North Dakota but was also recruited by other colleges for volleyball.
