    Biography

    What I Do
    I believe in providing individualized care to my patients as I help them understand and manage their neurological illnesses. Together, we set goals that achieve the best outcome possible and maximize their quality of life.

    Why I Love My Work
    My favorite part about my role is the focus on stroke prevention and patient education. I started working at CentraCare in 2013 as a new graduate RN on the Neuroscience and Spine unit at CentraCare - St. Cloud Hospital. After working for several years to care for people with neurological conditions, I knew I had found my calling and chose to pursue career advancement to become a nurse practitioner.

    Getting to Know Me
    Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my husband, friends, and family. We like watching and playing sports, traveling, biking, hiking, and downhill skiing.

    Growing up in central Minnesota, I am excited to be able to provide specialized neurological care in a large hospital that is close to home.
