I earned my BSN in 2001 at Michigan State University. From there I traveled to Chicago and began my nursing career in the Neonatal ICU (NICU) at Rush Children's Hospital. I subsequently worked as an agency RN at Northwestern Hospital and Children's Memorial, both in the NICU/Special Care Nurseries. Feeling adventurous, I embarked on a travel-nursing endeavor, which led me to California. I spent close to one and a half years in there, mostly at Stanford's Lucille Packard Children's Hospital working in the NICU. During this time, I decided to apply to anesthesia school. Upon my acceptance to St. Mary's University, I moved to Minnesota to begin graduate studies. In 2007, I successfully completed my MSN in Nurse Anesthesia, earning the degree / title of CRNA. After much thought, I accepted a position as a staff CRNA here at Children's of Minnesota on the Minneapolis campus. I can honestly say that was one of the best decisions I've ever made. I love my job!!! Unfortunately, my family lives in Michigan but I keep active training for triathlons and running (5k, 10k, half marathons). I enjoy training around the lakes and participating in any outdoor activities when I am not working.
