2021 Board Officers
A talented group of dedicated volunteers leading your professional association.
Carrie Kronberg, BSN, RN, CCRN-K
As a dedicated Washington State Nurse and continual advocate for professional development, I am honored to serve as a board liaison and supporter to all other NWRNA members. My strengths of individualization, inclusion, and consistency will provide strong support for the board.
Angie Lochridge, MSN, RN
I volunteer with NWRNA because I want to help build an organization which will support our practice, build our leadership skills, and provide a fun, respectful professional home. In my work, I see fellow nurses who work crazy hours and are eager for a sense of professional belonging. We don’t have a lot of extra time, but we do have the desire to connect and build stronger relationships. NWRNA is the building block for this ambition.
Jennifer Shelton, BSN, RN
I have always wanted to become involved politically but have never known where to get started. I am in a place in my life where I am interested in working with others to promote change and improve health outcomes within our region. I believe that I bring a unique perspective with several years’ experience as a registered nurse as well as working in many different healthcare settings.
Craig White, RN, PCCN
I am passionate about integrating myself with other nursing and healthcare professionals to help better collaborate care and resources for all people in our community; this is how I see providing superior healthcare. Since familiarizing myself and serving with the NWRNA for the last year, I feel strong in my decision to take on the treasurer position.
Joni Hensley, RN-BC, BSN, CIC
Why I am serving on the Board? I believe in the power of nurses. There are major challenges in healthcare right now including quality, access, and equity, and I am inspired to join the voices of my nursing colleagues. Historically nurses here in the north sound have been leaders in Washington State and beyond. I believe that we can better serve our communities with collective action and I look forward to rallying some of my nursing colleagues to advocate for change.
Kirty Morse, BSN, RN, RN-BC
Of all the professions I’ve had, nursing stands the test of time, patience and persistence. It heals me as I heal others, I now can’t imagine doing anything else. Serving on the board of NWRNA gives me great pride in collaborating and sharing the beauty of what nurses do, every day.
Our thanks to the members of the Founding Board Members of NWRNA, who worked to lay the groundwork for this association: Alex Dunne, Sally Herman, Sharon Hooey, Angie Lochridge, Bronwen O’Neill, and Neva Wiederspohn.
