What does a typical day look like for you?
Being in a small rural hospital, it is not unusual to be pulled into a multitude of different directions throughout the day and providing decision support in various meetings. However, diving deep into spreadsheets is what I enjoy the most about my daily routine. I take great pride in being the Financial Gatekeeper for Midwest Medical Center. At the end of my day currently, I enjoy taking a run with my Cross Country kids as I coach for the Benton, Southwestern, Cuba City Team.

To continue growth in our service area, providing valuable quality services to our community and to remain a strong independent organization.

Any random facts you could share with us?
