ISTM NPG council member 2016-2018

I am a family nurse practitioner and work in a large infectious disease and international travel clinic in Minnesota. The winters are long and cold here so Minnesotans like to travel, preferable to warm places! My work is a fascinating sub-specialty. Just when you think you have a handle on a particular topic of infection, another outbreak happens in a different country. My most recent trip was to South Africa and Mozambique. I was working with HIV and TB patients as well as celebrating a 50th birthday on safari. When I am not working, or traveling, I spend time with my daughters and husband. We like to paddle board, sail, swim,bike, hike and laugh!!
