Our team of medical professionals can help align treatments to your goals
Stephanie is co-owner, manager, and family nurse practitioner at Align Medical Center. Her interest in healthcare began in high school when she first worked as an aide. Her work in pain management as a registered nurse inspired her to want more than narcotics and steroids for her patients. She led several practice improvement projects that decreased risk, while improving outcomes for patients. She eventually returned to school and graduated in 2018 from the University of North Dakota with her nurse practitioner education. Stephanie’s belief of partnering with patients to create healthy lifestyles shines as she balances healthful changes with modern medical practices. In addition to her medical training, she is certified in advanced injection techniques and hormone replacement therapy. When she is not working, her family of 5 children and husband keep her busy. Together they enjoy traveling, hiking, skiing, and board games
