Teacher of Health Careers
I am a registered nurse with several years of experience in the acute care setting. I have delivered great healthcare to patients in the Intensive Care Unit, on the Medical/Surgical Floor and in the Family Birthing Center. I am a Certified Childbirth Educator and an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant. I earned my Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing from Northern Michigan University. I plan to continue my education to obtain a Teaching Certification.
After high school graduation I traveled, worked and explored the world. I married my best friend, a native of the Copper Country. Together we are raising our four children on the shores of Lake Superior. I love the beauty of the Upper Peninsula and enjoy the outdoors from the ski trails, campgrounds and gorgeous beaches.
I am always looking for ways to further my knowledge and stay advanced in an ever changing healthcare world. I look forward to bringing my enthusiasm and expertise to the students in the Health Careers class. In the classroom we will explore hundreds of health career options, learn successful communication skills, build resumes, participate in HOSA (Health Occupations Students of America), learn CPR and First Aid, gain hands on experience during clinic site rotations and receive a background of knowledge in Anatomy/Physiology and medical terminology amongst several other health care topics.
I am excited to continue the success of the Health Careers Program by maintaining the relationships that have been built with community members and healthcare organizations in the area. We are always looking for new learning opportunities and ways to give back to our community. If you have any suggestions or opportunities to connect with students, please contact me via phone (906) 482-4250 x 301. I believe with the support of the community, the Copper Country ISD will help build a solid foundation for the future of healthcare workers..
