Meet Our Team
The Arlington Health & Rehabilitation Management Team
Janine is a nurse by background and has held many nursing leadership positions in her career, primarily in hospitals. Janine has found the move to Skilled Nursing and Long-term Care at Arlington Health and Rehab to be highly fulfilling and rewarding. She loves getting to know our residents and you will often see her in the dining room or in resident’s rooms enjoying great conversations.
Janine is a native to North Dakota and graduated from the University of North Dakota with a bachelor’s degree in nursing. She went on to attain a master’s degree in Community Health Nursing from Seattle University. In her free time, she also enjoys spending time with family and friends, escape rooms, hiking and biking – but especially biking!
Brooke likes learning new things, not just to gain knowledge and be more efficient, but to help teach others as well. In the past, she has put her skills as a natural helper and passion for employee wellness to use in helping to create a Wellness Program for her previous employer. This segues into her additional charge in running the Fun Committee. In this capacity she works interdepartmentally to create fun and unifying moments with all staff to elevate the culture.
When she isn’t working, you can find Brooke in her garden, knitting something, or doing something creative/artsy. She loves being a mom, enjoys “wind therapy” with her hubby, and snuggles/playtime with her pups, Stella, Henry, and Copper.
