What do you do?
I am the clinical manager of the Critical Care unit at Gundersen Health System. I also volunteer for community events, at the La Crosse Community Theater, on a PTO board, and on the board of the local chapter of the International Honor Society of Nursing.
Why did you get involved in La Crosse SOUP?
I wholeheartedly believe in the power of people and the ideas that lie within their hearts and minds. Even more inspiring is when people come together to support those ideas and encourage each other in their pursuit of creating something for the common good. Institutions like SOUP provide the space and opportunity for this to happen with the sole focus of making the community better. So, it just makes sense that this is something I would want to be a part of.
What is your favorite place in La Crosse?
Pretty much right near the heart of our city sits my favorite spot... My front porch. I truly love just sitting there and experiencing the best of La Crosse. Usually sitting there with my wife, we see the past, present, and future of our city converging on each other. There is history and hope. There is life and laughter. There are friends and family. There is relationship and community. And maybe best of all, there is Ranison's :)
