About Me

I graduated from the co-sponsored CHI St. Alexius/University of Mary respiratory therapy program in 2008. Upon graduation, I began working for St. Alexius Medical Center (now CHI St. Alexius Health), focusing on adult critical care. I began teaching part-time for the respiratory therapy department in 2013. Teaching became my full-time job in 2015 when I took on my current role of clinical coordinator for the CHI St. Alexius Health/University of Mary respiratory therapy program. I currently represent the North Dakota Society for Respiratory Care by serving as a delegate in the American Association for Respiratory Care’s House of Delegates.

Why I’m At Mary

As a faculty member for CHI St. Alexius Health & University of Mary’s Respiratory Therapy Program I have the privilege of working in a program that is co-sponsored by two institutions founded by the Benedictine Sisters of Annunciation Monastery. This allows the Benedictine values to permeate both the classroom and clinical settings, which sets our respiratory therapy graduates apart.
