In 2000 I received my nurse aide certification followed by six years working as a C.N.A. in two different skilled nursing facilities. I received my LPN from Northeast Iowa Community College in 2009, as well as my RN in 2010, followed by my Bachelor's of Science in Nursing at Allen College in 2015. To date I have completed the course work to receive my Nursing Home Administrator's license and am working toward a Master's in Aging Studies. I have four years of experience as the Nurse Manager for a Traumatic Brain Injury Rehabilitation unit. In 2014 I joined the Buchanan County Health Center as the Director of Long Term Care for a 39 bed nursing facility and became the Director of Senior Operations in 2016 when I assumed leadership for our 24 apartment Independent Living facility.
