Julie L., RN Home Manager
As a 3rd generation Alaskan Julie always knew her life and career as a nurse would be here in Alaska. She graduated from UAA with her nursing degree and has spent all of her years of nursing right here in Anchorage, including Medical/Oncology at Providence Alaska Medical Center, Home Dialysis at Fresenius Medical, and now Home Dialysis at Liberty Dialysis. Julie loves being a Home Dialysis Nurse, teaching patients to provide their own care at home is the most rewarding nursing she has done. Some of the others hats Julie wears when she is not nursing include wife and mother to two beautiful young children. She loves everything Alaska has to offer and spends a lot of her free time enjoying the great outdoors with her family. Julie is excited to be a part of the Liberty Alaska Dialysis Team; it is by far the greatest job ever!
Michelle has been in health care her whole adult life, starting as a CNA and graduating from the University of Maine in Augusta in 2004.

She has 2 Jack Russell's that keep her very busy. She enjoys hiking, fishing, gardening and traveling.
In 1986, Kathy moved from Massachusetts to Alaska with the intention of only staying one year, but fell in love with the state and never left. With 15 years of dialysis experience, she was thrilled to be able to join the Liberty Home Team. Although she has only been in the position a short time, she finds reward in being part of the caring and talented team and looks forward to being a part of it for many years.
When not working, she enjoys family time, traveling, gardening & cooking.
