About Me

My nursing career began in Bismarck as a labor & delivery RN. I then earned my MSN as a women's health nurse practitioner from the University of Cincinnati in 2010. After working for a couple of years, I decided I wanted to broaden my scope of practice and therefore completed a post-master's certificate as a Family Nurse Practitioner. I am married and have one daughter and two sons. I love to spend time with my family and friends either on the river or sailing Lake Sakakawea. I also enjoy cooking, reading, and yoga.

Why I’m At Mary

The University of Mary has always graduated excellent students. I am excited to be a part of the exceptional faculty here at Mary and to share my passion for nursing with my students in a faith-filled community that not only educates the mind but also nurtures the soul.


My clinical expertise lies in women's health, internal medicine, family practice, oncology, and hematology. I currently practice full-time providing primary care and palliative care to patients in their personal homes, assisted living facilities, and long-term care facilities.
