I have been a local resident since 1994, when I married a young man from Luck. We resided in Luck, Amery and eventually built in rural Dresser.
After providing care as a registered nurse for over 20 years at area hospitals, I felt called to further my education. It was a dream of mine to provide health care to residents of my rural hometown community. I am so blessed to start my career as a nurse practitioner in a town that is so special to me.
We often spend time at "our land" near Bone Lake cutting firewood, harvesting a little maple sap, or just wandering around the woods. We have three wonderful daughters and as a family enjoy skiing, horses, and attending track meets. We are also active volunteers in the Polk County 4H horse project and at the county fair.
