I handle the billing, ordering, repairs, laundry, snow removal, shopping and changing light bulbs. I also cover the reception desk for Jeannine and maintain compliance with government policies and do all the numerous task that the office needs to stay running smoothly. I joined the Center in January of 2000. Before moving to North Platte in the winter of 2000, I lived in Hastings, Nebraska for 28 years and worked at the Perfect Circle manufacturing plant for 23 years. It has definitely been an exciting career change for me. I hope to see you soon and assure you that all of us at the Center for Health are committed to serving you, our valued patient."

I enjoy learning about the supplements, health products and services that we provide to our patients. This is the first time I've worked in a doctor's office and I thoroughly enjoy what I do and the people I work with. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from Miami University.
