I’m the new Administrator at Maple Ridge Care Center and I feel so very blessed to be here leading this phenomenal team. I have been in long term care for 25 years and am a Registered Dietitian and Nursing Home Administrator. I worked at Mayo Clinic for approximately 20 years in administration in long term care, critical access hospitals and home health and hospice, and most recently in a nursing home in Ladysmith.

I live in Exeland on a small hobby farm with my husband, Rich, and my three children, Brianna (21), Olivia (19) and Isaiah (14). We live on the old family farm that my parents farmed and milked cows for many years. I love the outdoors, being with my animals and my family. I also enjoy cooking, baking and canning in the fall. Thank you all for welcoming me into this community and organization. I am very excited for the future of Maple Ridge Care Center!
