    Background

    Throughout my nursing career, I have had a strong focus and passion for Women’s Health, Neonatal Health, Community Health, and Information Technology. I began my career working in obstetrics at St. Joseph Hospital in Milwaukee in 2005. I continued my career there after graduating with my BSN in 2007.  In the spring of 2011, I began my teaching career as an adjunct clinical instructor for WLC teaching adult health. Since then I have taught a variety of clinical rotations for WLC including obstetrics, community health, adult health, aging and long-term care, and foundations of nursing. I accepted a full-time call to WLC in 2012 and completed my MSN in 2013.  In 2014 I completed a 9-credit certificate in online instruction through WLC. In 2015 I completed the Parish Nursing course offered at WLC.

    I serve as the clinical coordinator and lab coordinator for the WLC nursing program.

    My husband John and I live in Slinger and have four children: Benjamin, Sara Ann, Abigail, and Marah. We enjoy watching and/or coaching our children’s activities including soccer, basketball, swimming, and gymnastics.  We are members of Peace Lutheran Church in Hartford.
