Grounds Lead, Rapid City

Along with maintaining the grounds at all Monument Health locations in Rapid City, the grounds team works closely with contractors to coordinate projects and repairs.

My Role

As grounds lead at Monument Health my role is foremost to create a positive first impression, reflective of the type of care that patients and families receive while at our facilities.

My Goal

My main goal is to create safe, welcoming, beautiful and well-maintained spaces. I would also like to continue to strengthen our snow removal efforts to minimize any extra stress on patients, visitors and staff. The first time I saw wheelchair tracks in the snow, I realized the bigger picture of my involvement in the care of patients and visitors to our facilities.

My Passion

My passions include everything plants! I love learning about them working with them and just being around them. I’m working to transfer my Master Gardener certification to South Dakota and become an International Society of Arboriculture-certified consulting arborist.

We approach the grounds with a detailed eye and strive to make a difference every day; this wouldn’t be possible without our amazing grounds team here at Rapid City hospital including Scott Stucker and JJ Flynn.
