Leane joined the UNW School of Nursing Team in March 2013 as the Coordinator of Clinical Operations. She had the privilege of finalizing program requirements prior to the start of the first cohort in May 2013. Leane was instrumental in developing the School of Nursing application process. She also worked with the clinical partners, ensuring they had all information they needed and that students were current with all health requirements.

Leane’s role has evolved over the years and now her focus is advising the pre-nursing students and assisting students through the SON Application Process. She enjoys being a part of the Admissions and SON Team to ensure consistency and regular communication. She uses her 14 years of experience as a licensed Children’s Pastor and counselor to encourage and support the pre-nursing students. While she will be the first to agree that learning the nursing skills is essential, she rejoices when a student shares how their relationship with the Lord has deepened through the struggles and joys of being a student.

Leane holds a Master of Arts in Christian Education, a Bachelor of Science in Music Therapy and a Counseling Certificate. Her experience includes creating training modules, used in her consulting with several Twin Cities churches and being a conference speaker as well as a chapel speaker at a Bible camp. She has enjoyed the challenge of coordinating children’s programs at the Lake Okoboji Bible and Missionary Conference and the Twin Cities Luis Palau Festival. Some of her favorite memories are from the seven mission trips to India, where she managed the team schedule, and provided training to parents, orphanage house parents and teachers at a state-run school.

When she’s not working, Leane enjoys being a part of Bible Study Fellowship (BSF) and will serve as the Assistant Children’s Supervisor this coming school year. She is blessed to be involved in the lives of both her former “church and UNW kids” through texts, lunch dates, and attending weddings and baby showers. Leane is currently developing her jewelry business, and loves spending quality time with friends and reading Christian suspense novels.
