Motto or Favorite Quote:
Happy Wife - Happy Life
What are you currently most excited about with your work/career?  I am in my 30th year at St. Luke's and I can't believe how fast the 30 years have gone by. St. Luke's is an awesome place to work and provides me with the platform to use my talents and skills to provide the best outcomes for patients and families that choose St. Luke's very day.
What do you enjoy most about living, working and playing in Siouxland?  I enjoy the quality of life, short commutes, entertainment, food and the golf courses.
Main lesson you've learned in life:   Enjoy every day and never burn a bridge with anyone.
