Lana put herself through nursing school while raising 5 children under the age of 8. She received a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Linfield College in 1996. She began her nursing career working in the hospital in a med-surg unit and quickly moved into critical care where she worked for 5 years. She has experience as a preceptor for nursing students, taught nursing assistant classes, managed triage nurses in a family practice setting, and spent over 15 years in community-based care. In the community-based care setting she was a health services manager in assisted living, and then moved into a regional nurse specialist position, traveling across Oregon and Washington supporting multiple assisted living and memory care communities. During that time Lana received an award as the “Care Manager of the Year.” She is certified through the CDC as an Infection Prevention Specialist.
Lana lives on a small farm, and enjoys taking care of her 2 horses, 2 kitties, dogs, chickens, and cows. She enjoys gardening, baking, going to the beach, walking in the woods, reading, watching movies, and spending time with her 14 grandchildren.
