    What I Do
    I have worked for CentraCare for the past 32 years in a variety of roles and areas. My philosophy of care is to help and assist my patients to achieve their goals despite their limitations and disabilities. My special clinical interests include rehabilitation medicine with a focus on strokes, brain injury, spinal cord injury and amputation.

    Why I Love My Work
    I enjoy the team approach to incorporate everyone's expertise to improve our patient experience. I love the ability to actively see my patients improve in their function and ability. I like to know my patients as a person. Learning their story helps me to work with them on what is most important for their health and care. I also enjoy and appreciate the work environment, the people and the values of the CentraCare health system.

    Getting to Know Me
    Outside of work, I enjoy running, hiking and traveling. I also enjoy spending time with my husband, children and grandchildren.
