Black River Memorial Hospital
Tell us a little about yourself?
Well, I've been in healthcare for ten years now. Before that I worked in banking and investments and before that, I worked in HR at UPS in Milwaukee. I've been fortunate to have started my leadership career when I was young and have over 20 years in leadership now. I grew up in the Fond du Lac region, graduated from UWM with a bachelor's in psychology, and from Lakeland College with an MBA.
What are 3 words to describe your company?
What does a typical day look like for you?

Retirement! Just kidding. I would like to see my role continue on it's path and my teams continue to develop best practices. Maybe work remotely from Arizona, too.

Why did you join HFMA Wisconsin?
I was new to healthcare and in way over my head! I needed to know what I didn't know and make connections to people who could point me in the right direction. (It worked!)
