Faith Community Nurse
I am so excited to be a Faith Community Nurse at First Free! I graduated nursing school from Metropolitan State University in 2019 and have worked at Abbott Northwestern Hospital and most recently as a Public Health Nurse. My main focus as a Public Health Nurse was working with those who have tuberculosis and assisting new immigrants and refugees to the county. I also assisted in our vaccination clinics and in the county’s COVID response. My first degree is in elementary education, which has been helpful as much of nursing is to provide education to clients. I believe being a nurse is a calling, and I am blessed to be able to create connections with people from all walks of life.
My husband and I have been attending First Free since 2014. We live in Chaska and have a 4-year-old daughter named Abigail and a new puppy named Juniper. I have been on the Caring Commission for quite a few years and was also a homebound visitor. I am excited to create supportive connections at church and walk alongside those facing challenging situations. I look forward to serving our congregation as a Faith Community Nurse!
