Stephanie Marthens-Sartin
MNRS Executive Director

"I genuinely believe that MNRS members strives to make the nursing community and the people they serve healthier, and I want to be the person who helps them accomplish their mission."

Outside of work, I'm on an adventure kayaking, camping, and hiking in the forest. Or I'm in my garden or resting around the bonfire under the moon, watching the stars.

My favorite food is anything cookie dough flavored!

My favorite quote is “Not all those who wonder are lost.” -J.R.R. Tolkien

Susanne Tomlinson
Senior MNRS Member Services Manager

"I am lucky enough to work with incredible Midwest nurses to ensure they receive their member benefits throughout the year!"

Outside of work, you can find me with family and friends, errand running, shopping, cooking out, and by a pool in the summer.

My favorite food is Italian, anything Italian – pasta and cheese all day!

My favorite quote is "If you can be one thing – BE KIND!"


Christine Farwell 
MNRS Content Manager

"The culture here is great! The people are genuinely nice, helpful and passionate about the mission."

Outside of work, you will find me doing projects on my house, in the summer by the pool and in the fall watching football!

My favorite food is Italian.

My favorite quote is “Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”
