A Little Bit About Me:

I am a Nurse Practitioner (NP) in reproductive health and love my Grinnell College students who are open and inquisitive and are interested in learning about their bodies and their health. I also work in a community clinic in Marshalltown with many Mexican and Burmese patients.

I am active on my national and state NP Boards and was recently named a Fellow of the American Association of Nurse Practitioners. I swim, participate in two book groups, travel with my hubby during school vacations (Bill Ferguson '75, teaches Econ) and try to keep up with my twins (Caitlin, Grinnell 2014, and Taylor, Pomona 2014).

Other Alumni Involvement: Reunion Planning Committee
