Our Leadership Team

From the CEO

It has been my privilege to serve as the Chief Executive Officer at SMP Health – Ave Maria since 2007. I have been a health care administrator since 1982 and have worked in several other hospitals and nursing facilities in North Dakota. I can state with confidence that I have never enjoyed serving anywhere as much as at SMP Health – Ave Maria. Our sponsors, the Sisters of Mary of the Presentation, have a wonderful philosophy and set of core values.  The Sisters set the tone and are a marvelous example for all of us fortunate enough to serve in their health care ministries.  As one of those ministries, our challenge is to be the hands, feet, eyes, and heart of Jesus to dozens of God’s children every single day. What a privilege and opportunity we have to make a difference in so many lives! Please consider becoming a part of our ministry in whatever capacity and to whatever extent you are able.
