Biography

As a nurse, I have worked in a variety of settings, including hospitals, a clinic, and worksites. For 11 years of my nursing career, I worked as an occupational health nurse, providing care and promoting health and safety to employees in different work environments. I also received a certificate in ergonomics, which further helped my work in injury prevention in the workplace. No matter where I worked though, my love of teaching was always strong, both one on one with patients, as well as in larger groups and classroom settings. After completion of my MSN in 2005, I changed career paths and stepped into the role of staff education. In September 2009, I received a divine call to join WLC as the second member of the faculty for the new nursing program. Besides this new role, I also teach a course in pathology at Wisconsin School of Massage Therapy.

My husband, Todd, and I live in Slinger and have three children. We are members at Peace Lutheran Church in Hartford. In my spare time, I enjoy genealogy, piano, antiques, scrapbooking, and yard work.
