Program Administrator

I have been with Sanford Health since 2005. I joined the Cardiology Fellowship world in 2018 and have loved every minute of it.

Our Fellows are fantastic and a joy to work with each day. I work in partnership with our Program Director to ensure we meet accreditation requirements for a successful program. A successful program = successful alumni. I look forward to answering your questions and helping you out the best I can.
