Tina has worked on both the clinical and administrative sides of the healthcare system for over 20 years. She got her start as a medical assistant working at MercyOne. Her clinIIrience includes spinal surgery, neurology and dental. She crossed over to the administrative side of healthcare to manage a busy chiropractic clinic. She has taught diagnostic and procedural coding as well as medical office management classes at the local college.
At Nelson Hearing Clinics, Tina pushes staff to stay on the cutting edge of clinical care and management. She implemented electronic health records in all our clinics and started our veteran’s program, where we provide local audiological care for veterans through the Veteran’s Administration and their Community Cares Program.
Tina lives in Spencer with her husband, Tyler, and their son, Maddox. They love spending time together in their pool or at the lake, playing cards (Hand and Foot and 500 are some of their favorites!) and building Legos as a family.
