Mandy is a true northwest girl. She grew up right here in Bellingham, graduated from Sehome High School, and attended both Whatcom Community College and Bellingham Technical College–twice. She lives in the county with goats, chickens, dogs, and a horse. She likes camping. She likes coffee. She drives a big black truck. See what I mean?
Upon graduation from Sehome, Mandy went to Whatcom on a basketball scholarship. This allowed her to get her higher education degree started and to still stroke threes (her basketball specialty) at the same time. She was successful on both the academic and athletic front, but moved on to Bellingham Technical College for her X-ray Tech degree. She did some of this work, started a family, and became very busy…so she found other work more conducive to a new mom’s schedule. Of note during this stretc was a five-year stint as a CNA at Peace Health hospital (where she learned a ton) and a gig at the Bellingham Airport with Allegiant Air.
Mandy was still trying to find the right fit for her, and so she enrolled at BTC again for her RN degree. Upon graduation in 2016, she spent some time at the Pacific Rim Surgery Center and at a national home infusion company. She recently started with us here at Infusion Solutions, and has hit the ground running! She reports that finally, she has found her calling, and it is infusion. She loves getting to know patients and spending quality one-on-one time with the patients she is caring for.
Outside of work, Mandy stays busy with her 5 acre hobby farm, all those animals, and raising her two kids. It seems the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree—both her kids are very active in sports and AAU basketball, so they are constantly on the go. She somehow also manages to find time to breed beautiful Golden Retrievers.
