I’ve worked at PrairieCare since finishing my Child Fellowship in 2009. This was an easy decision for me to make at the time with it being a young organization and I was excited to begin at a ground level. Over the years, I’ve enjoyed several different roles, titles and getting to work at multiple different sites. I’ve enjoyed everything from starting the first hospital in Maple Grove, the PHP program in Chaska, PHP in Edina, moving to the new hospital in Brooklyn Park and have worn several different leadership and administrative hats over the years. I can honestly say that the best part about working at PrairieCare has always been the people. Why do I work at PrairieCare? Quite simply, because I truly enjoy it. I love working with all my colleagues and the quality care that we collectively continue to provide for our community and all their families.
