Hailing from a family of nurses, Ms. Boechler desired to follow in the footsteps of her mother and sister into the nursing field. She started out as a nurse’s aide at Clinton Memorial Hospital in St. John’s Michigan while working toward an Associate’s degree from Lansing Community College, graduating in 1967, and received a degree in nursing in 1972, opening the door further into her career. In addition, Ms. Boechler earned a Bachelor of Science in 1982 and a Master of Public Administration in healthcare administration in 1991. She is also certified as a nurse administrator by the American Nurses Association.
Progressing in her professional endeavors, Ms. Boechler rose from a staff nurse to assistant head nurse to head nurse at Sparrow Hospital over the span of a decade before serving as a department manager from 1982 to 1987. Subsequently, she was an office nurse for Dr. R. Swenson from 1988 to 2000 and a nurse administrator at Michigan State University’s Student Health Service for 13 years until 2013, during which she helped spearhead a neighborhood clinic. Reflecting on her diverse career, Ms. Boechler is most fond of her time in neurology, in which she contributed to establishing the neuro-intensive care program at Pharell Hospital and a cardiac care to limit unit.
