As a manager for the Disease Management section of Respiratory Care Services at Sanford Medical Center Fargo, I provide leadership and direction for clinical and business operations to ensure delivery of quality healthcare, success and profitablility. RCS Disease Management includes Pulmonary Lab; Pulmonary Rehab; and Asthma, COPD, and Tobacco Education. These services provide diagnostic testing, rehabilitation, education and counseling for patients living with chronic respiratory disease and/or nicotine addiction.

In 2008, I became Sanford's first RT COPD Clinical Specialist and was tasked with fostering interdisciplinary teams to improve performance outcomes for COPD care in both the inpatient and ambulatory care settings. Over the course of my 38-year career at Sanford, I have served on numerous work groups focused on improving patient and organizational outcomes, including reduced readmissions. I am a co-author of an open forum abstract presented at 2011 AARC International Congress that was awarded the Charles W. Serby COPD Research Fellowship.​​​  My passion is to ensure that people with chronic pulmonary disease have the ability to live well in their homes.
