I have been working in a Quality Improvement role since 2011 at a local health care system with a wide range of focus areas ranging from bedside care improvement, support systems (like IT, HR, Marketing) improvements, and community health improvement. I have been teaching Quality Improvement at the U of MN since 2016. I have also worked managing various clinics, and have a background in nursing in the emergency room.
