What is your title with UPHS-Bell?
Receptionist – Bell Pediatrics
What drew you to Bell?
I was born and raised in Negaunee and have always loved the Bell atmosphere at each visit, no matter the location. The small town atmosphere and close-knit community allow us to get to know our patients, and the employees in both the clinic and hospital to become a “family.”
People would be surprised if they knew:
I danced ballet for 8 years and dreamt of becoming a ballerina.
Tell us about your family.
My husband, Bryan, and I have been married for almost 2 years. We spend a lot of our free time going to concerts. Music is our passion and is what made us fall in love with one another. We have a 3-year-old daughter, Bailee, and are expecting another daughter, Macie, to arrive in June. But, our house wouldn’t be a home without our fur babies; Ace and Ellie.
Name something on your bucket list.
To visit all 50 states in the U.S.
What aspect of your role do you enjoy the most?
I love to get to know our patients and their parents and learn their story. I also like that I get to be the first person they see when they come to our office, and hopefully, start their visit on a positive note.
