Q. In what ways is your life remarkable?
I am blessed with an amazing son who reminds me every day how remarkable life is. For example, in the eyes of a 5-year-old a dandelion is a beautiful flower (but seen as a nuisance in the yard). This is a reminder that all life is truly beautiful and something to be appreciated!
Q. What quality or trait is most beneficial to you, your family, and community’s health?
Balance: Personally, Professional and Spiritually
Q. What are 1-2 lessons you've learned in how to live?
What’s meant to be is meant to be.
Q. How has an illness, chronic disease, weight loss/gain, health of you or that of a family member or friend changed you? Do you look at your life differently?
I have had several friends and family experience a new normal upon diagnosis of an illness. These events certainly make you realize the amount of things we take for granted which should be appreciated.
Q. Where do you work?
I’m the Family Planning Program Director at the North Dakota Department of Health. I began as an intern and as my passion grew for health prevention and promotion my journey continued! Through work, I’ve learned to be an advocate for your own health.
Q. How did you get involved in the Women’s Health Conference?
I became involved with the Women’s Health Conference through my role as the N.D. Women’s Health Liaison for the Office of Women’s Health and my role as Family Planning Program Director for the NDDoH. The one message I would want attendees to take away is to make you a priority. Too often as mothers, wife’s, etc. we think of our family before ourselves. However, the key to taking care of our family is taking care of us as well!
Q. How do you want to be remembered?
As a faithful, caring, dependable and loving mom, family member and friend with a lot of spunk and ambition.
