I grew up in Sparks, NV. After graduating from high school I went to nursing school at Dominican College in San Rafael, CA. Once I had finished college and passed my nursing boards, I returned to the Reno area to be close to my family. I worked as an RN for in the Reno/Sparks area for 20 years, primarily in the operating room, before obtaining my master’s of nursing degree and became a licensed advanced practice registered nurse. I worked in primary care for a year and a half before joining Dr. Sasse.
I have enjoyed volunteering in the community through Girls on the Run of the Sierras and Pathfinders Children’s Ministry. I have been active in the local Advanced Practice Nurses Association in the planning of educational dinners and CEU events. In my spare time I enjoy life with my husband, son, dogs and family; particularly hiking, camping and traveling.
