To educate myself to enjoy the world around me! ( and try to better understand it in the process)
Most Important Goal
Honestly, to live every day learning something new!
Have always been in nursing, having started in Hospice in New York, then worked at Weld County General while in school in Colorado, and then moving to California to do pediatric supervisory management with Kaiser Permanente at Harbor General in LA county California. Presently work for Advanced Healthcare here in Wisconsin with a primary emphasis in Pediatrics, doing back-up in Ob-Gyn, and Internal Medicine as well as Phone triage.

Married to Duffy for 37 years. Parents of 4 daughters, 2 son-in laws, and one grandson. Born and raised in the Twin Cities area of St. Paul, Minnesota where my 90-year-old parents and 5 siblings all reside.
Interests & Hobbies
Skiing (both downhill and cross country), kayaking on Lake Michigan, biking, hiking and just about anything that gets me outdoors! Love to travel as we lived in Colorado as well as California and still have family and friends there.
Raising 4, seemingly well adjusted, successful daughters! And still thinking my husband is a great human being after all these years!
I love County Board (most days), as it gives me great opportunities to learn about all that goes on the county and relate that to a much wider world that we live in! Makes for an interesting take on things.
