Nursing is in nearly every setting of healthcare; the opportunities are endless as are the outlets in which being able to serve my communities.

I saw respect and compassion towards the community members; especially when I attended Gundersen Waukon Clinic. Being here just felt right. I knew I wanted to be part of the Gundersen family, and at some point in my career, I wanted to be with Gundersen Waukon. I was elated when I was offered a position at Gundersen Waukon.
