As a surgical nurse, she was placed on the first Heart Transplant Team for two years at Lutheran Hospital then designed and created the OR Technician course at Lutheran Hospital and was able to get the accreditation from the American Medical Association. She was the primary instructor for the OR technician courses then returned to nursing after two years as the market need for ORT’s was met.
