She has over 38 years of experience providing full-time direct patient care in occupational and hand therapy.

Her winter activities include hiking, walking, Nordic skiing, snowshoeing, and travelling to the southwest states. Summer activities include avid gardening, travelling to “up north” MN to the family cabin where she enjoys bicycling, hiking, paddle boarding, and kayaking.
