Nice to Meet You

Hi, my name is Deb, and I am your Nurse Practitioner at ADVENT. A little about me…I have lived in the Twin Cities area for 30 years. Two of my aunts were nurses who inspired me to fall in love with the science and caretaking aspects of nursing. I switched to focus on ENT because my husband has sleep apnea - I have witnessed first-hand the importance of breathing and sleeping well, so I aspire to help other people (and their partners) get a healthy night’s sleep.

As my patient, you can expect an experience that is comfortable. Nothing provides me more gratification than walking a patient through an experience where their life is significantly better on the other end. I will ensure you are armed with the knowledge to feel confident that I will help find a solution to your problem rather than a band-aid.

How I Can Help

"I went to ENT's for years and they did very little to help my sinus issues. They just prescribed nasal sprays for years, one after another. Advent was great. All appointments were very detailed and informative. They spend a lot of time looking into my sinus problems. My breathing is so much better but not perfect after my procedure. I will take the improvement they gave me any day over the ENT doctors I saw before."

This place has literally changed my life. I have been a lifelong sufferer of sinus problems. Through the years, I have tried multiple over the counter remedies, seen several ENT specialists, and had a majorly invasive sinus surgery. None of it has ever really helped, and the surgery made it worse. I went to ADVENT...and I'm breathing more clearly than I ever thought possible. They truly delivered significant results. I am and will forever be grateful for the major improvement in the quality of my life.

This is a 1-stop-shop for issues dealing with those miserable nose, sinus and throat and breathing issues with lots of solutions and info to make an informed choice. Don’t waste your money on "a" specialist when it's all here under one roof and very reasonable cost wise. All we know is to go to Sleep centers that will slap miserable CPAP machines on you which only help with sleep disorders. Allergists give you sprays. Helpful....but ADVENT addresses several areas of sinus-nose-throat concerns. My Family member was given a Balloon Sinoplasty because sinuses were in bad shape from all previous nonsense and chronic drowning in mucus. He back at work next day with mild discomfort for 2 days. Major improvements! Was told if this didnt help as much as hoped, other things could be assessed. Very nice staff. Terrific follow up aftercare and support all along the way. very professional.

More About Me

Outside of work, I love to garden. As a child, I had a dream to own a flower shop, so the younger me would be thrilled to know I have flowers and vegetables in my garden. I also love to cook for my friends and family. Sometimes I will try a dish from a restaurant (Red Rabbit’s smoked oysters are some of my favorites) and then attempt to recreate it at home.

I look forward to meeting you and leading you on your journey at ADVENT.
