    What I Do
    I believe that all people should have access to health care. As a medical social worker, I work to reduce and hopefully eliminate barriers that make access to health care difficult for my patients.

    Why I Love My Work
    Working at CentraCare – Coborn Cancer Center allows me to connect with patients at various stages of their illness. I enjoy being involved with a patient’s cancer journey and assisting them with resources to help reduce some of the burdens that go along with a cancer diagnosis.

    What I enjoy most about my job is working together with patients and their families, identifying the challenges they are facing, and working through them together.

    Getting to Know Me
    I enjoy spending time with my husband and children. We love the outdoors and connecting with friends and family.

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

CentraCare care givers have been working around the clock for more than 20 months to care for you, your families and friends during COVID. We are committed to caring for every Minnesotan who needs us, and nothing will prevent us from doing so – even during these never-seen-before times.

The challenge of providing this level of care is that our hospital beds are often full. ERs in all of our hospitals are packed. And our clinical teams are exhausted. Early in the pandemic, our community stepped up in amazing ways to help us. We ask that you again join us in fighting this pandemic together.

How can you help?

  • Please get your COVID vaccines and booster shots. They are proven safe and effective in reducing COVID illness, keeping people out of the hospital, and preventing death.
  • If your situation is not an emergency, please use other care options, including:
  • If this is a medical emergency, call 9-1-1, or visit the ER.

Together, we can do this. Thank you for your support.
