Fun Facts: I grew up in Michigan with all of my education taking place there. I chose North Country HealthCare for the rural experiences and unique training opportunities, its beautiful location in the mountains, and to be close to family that has since relocated to Arizona from Michigan. In my free time I enjoy being outside, hiking and skiing.
