Biography and Personal Interests
I have been a nurse for 35 years. I spent the first 19 years “specializing” in pediatrics. I realized thatI wanted to take care of families too, so I decided to concentrate my career in obstetrics and women’s health care. Taking care of pregnant women before and during labor has been very fulfilling and enjoyable. It is an honor to help bring a baby into this world.
I like to assist families in experiencing the type of labor they want in a calming and supportive manner. I love our midwifery practice at Western ObGyn because we are able to offer a full range of midwifery care in a supportive environment.
I have two grown children and have five cats as a result of my work in feline rescues. I am a fiber artist, and spin wool and make my own yarn. My specialty is knitting socks and Scandinavian mittens. I am originally from northwest Iowa and claim my Dutch heritage as much as my Scandinavian. Even though I’ve lived in Minnesota for 30 years, I still root for the Iowa Hawkeyes. I enjoy being active in my church, especially in music
