    I grew up in Austin, MN and graduated with an Associate in Arts and Licensed Practical Nurse Diploma in 2004 from Riverland Community College. After a few years working and determining my passion for nursing, I was accepted to MSU-Mankato’s nursing program. I graduated in 2009 with a Bachelor’s in Science – Nursing and a minor in biology. I returned to Austin and worked at Mayo Clinic Health System - Austin in various roles. In 2014 I relocated to Ellendale area and transferred to Mayo Clinic Health System – Owatonna where I worked with individuals who had diabetes, heart disease, and mental health issues. In 2014 I married a NRHEG graduate who spoke highly of the school. I started at NRHEG in 2016. In 2017 my husband and I welcomed our son and we are happy to be welcoming another baby in 2019. I enjoy working with the students and trying to educate them on their body and how injury and illness effect it.
