I am new to Amery, so I am excited to become a part of this community and serve as an adult-gerontology nurse practitioner. As a nurse I worked mostly with patients as they woke up from anesthesia and surgery, but always enjoyed the challenge that complex health conditions added to recovery. Now, as a doctorally prepared nurse practitioner, I look forward to caring for individuals in the adult and geriatric populations as they require transitional and long-term care.
I am newly married and enjoy spending time with my husband, family and friends. I enjoy hiking, camping, reading, snowmobiling, attempting to cook, hunting and live music. My favorite place to travel to and camp is the state of Wyoming.
