Brief biography

I have worked at the UW-L Student Health Center since 1995.  Before coming to UW-L, I worked in Family Practice and the Center for Women's Health at Mayo Clinic-Franciscan Healthcare La Crosse.   I really enjoy my work with students and the specialty of College Health. 


I am originally from Des Moines, IA.  My husband and I raised our 3 children here in La Crosse and all 3 are now in graduate school.  We enjoy travel, both in the US and internationally, as well as many active outside activities with our family.
