I have been working at St. Kates since 2013, in the Associate Degree Nursing Program, the College for Adults, and the College for Women. My husband was active duty Army for 21 years (retired in 2013) so I have worked in a variety of areas of Nursing all over the US prior to finding my home at St. Kates including; Med/Surg in Texas and Kansas, Pediatric Rehab in Kentucky, OB in Kansas, Telephone Triage in California, College Health in Colorado, Community Health, Urgent Care, and PACU in MN.  I graduated from Gustavus in 1994 with my BAN and in 2013 from St. Kates with my MSN in nursing education.  We have 4 kids.  Lucy, who recently graduated from the University of MN in Chemical Engineering , Ben, who is at the U studying Mathematics, Julia who is a Sr. in HS, and Nathan who is a Soph in HS.  I spend my extra time at Core Power Yoga, watching Julia swim, and Nathan Play hockey and football and by volunteering at Play for Patrick Heart Screenings and for youth sports. Finally, we have two lovely Golden Retrievers named Marty and Louie.
