I was born and raised in Kalispell with some short periods living in other states mixed in. I am a Registered Nurse, who found her way into local public health in 2004. I spent a very rewarding 16 years at the Flathead City-County Health Department before accepting a position with the Montana Public Health Institute in November 2020. As a recent graduate with my MPH, I am excited for the opportunity to collaborate and support others in public health across Montana.
I am married and my husband and I have 3 adult children, all living in Montana. I enjoy being in the outdoors in our great state while camping, running, and hiking. I also enjoy music and spending time with a good book in my hands.
