Rae is a Program Manager at the Child Health Specialty Clinic in Carroll, IA.
I am in the Division of Child and Community Health in the Child Health Specialty Clinic in Carroll. I supervise the CHSC Carroll Regional Center and also supervise and provide leadership for our Early ACCESS Service Coordinators who are in CHSC offices throughout the state. I have worked this time for over 12 years. I worked at UIHC on 5 Boyd Tower on a pre op-post off cancer unit in the very early 80’s for a couple of years before I got married.
I met my husband on a blind date following a Hawkeye football game. We farm on “the home place” near Fonda. We have been blessed with 3 kids, our 1st son lived 16 weeks following his premature birth and them we were lucky enough to adopt a daughter and a son.
I’m trying to figure out what I like to do as I am retiring on August 10th! I like computer games and we golf. Love audio books too, and our grand dog.
I always wanted to work in a Hallmark store as I figured no one dies if you help someone pick the wrong card.
Most fascinating place I’ve ever visited? Not sure they are fascinating but love the fun of New Orleans and Nashville.
Favorite meal? My homemade meatloaf or anything with pasta in it.
Favorite book or movie? I liked reading “It” by Stephen King but couldn’t watch the move. “Monsters Inc.”, is my favorite movie.
If I had 3 wishes, they would be 1. Kindness and employment for people who dance to a different beat. 2. Consistently better golf game. 3. A cure for cancer.
Fun fact: I finished my Bachelors degree at the ripe old age of 53.
