MSN, APRN-NP, AOCNP
I was born and raised in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, I relocated to Omaha after obtaining my Bachelors of Science in Nursing from Mount Mercy University. My first job as a nurse was on a hospital floor caring for general medicine and oncology patients. As fate would have it, I discovered my calling.
My nursing career has taken me from caring for oncology patients receiving inpatient and outpatient treatments to inpatient high dose therapies followed by stem cell transplantation. I earned by Masters of Science in Nursing from UNMC in 1997 as an adult nurse practitioner with a focus in oncology. I joined Nebraska Cancer Specialists in 2001 as their first full-time nurse practitioner. It has been an honor and privilege working for the best oncology practice in Nebraska. I plan to continue my career in oncology until a cure is found because “nobody fights alone.”
