Meet Our Nursing Staff

 

Meet Brooke Munk, RN

In 2013, I graduated from the University of Sioux Falls with my B.S. in Nursing. My background is in Oncology and Transplant, so switching to plastic surgery was a big (but welcomed) change. I am so glad that I was given this opportunity!

When thinking about plastic surgery, most people think of the various cosmetic surgeries offered. What I love about Plastic Surgery Associates of SD, is that we offer so much more than that! We provide a variety of noninvasive procedures in addition to the several cosmetic surgeries that typically come to mind. It is rewarding to see the increase in mental and physical well-being of our patients after having one of our various services.

My husband and I recently got married and we got our first fur baby in March. Mabel is our English Bulldog that we can’t get enough of. We love to spend our time with her and teach her a trick or two.

My biggest passion is in health and wellness. I enjoy everything from eating healthy, to sports and attending workout classes. I also love to travel. My favorite destination is Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. My husband and I like to plan little weekend trips to different cities when the opportunity arises. We love being outdoors so we can usually be found camping, hiking, or hunting. I have a long list of cities I would still love to visit…any suggestions are welcome! And when I can find the time, I enjoy sitting down to read a good book.


Meet Ashley Vogt, RN BAN

Ashley Vogt, RN BAN began her employment at Plastic Surgery Associates (PSA) in the clerical area as she studied nursing at Augustana College in 2011. When she graduated in June 2013 with her Bachelor of Arts in Nursing she started at Rivers Edge Aesthetic Surgery (REAS), the ambulatory surgery center on site, as a part time employee. She worked full time at the Veteran’s Hospital. Ashley appreciated the diversity REAS had to offer which influenced her decision to accept a full time position at PSA and REAS in June 2015.  She enjoys the versatility of her nursing role as her favorite aspects of the position are the ability to provide continuity of care to the surgical patients and cosmetic injections.

Ashley lives in Sioux Falls with her two dogs Tucker and Jacie. She is from a small town in southwest Minnesota.  She grew up there with her mother, father, and three younger brothers. She enjoys traveling, biking, learning new things, and sushi.  Ashley always knew she wanted to pursue a profession in the medical field, but was uncertain as to what capacity, from her experience as a certified nursing assistant at a local nursing home. As she began her college experience it became clear that nursing was a great fit for her.  Ashley loves her nursing career and all of the opportunity it has lent. She hopes to further her education in nursing sometime in the near future.

Ashley is very enthusiastic and passionate about the care and services she provides patients. She loves meeting new people and is excited to see where her nursing career with PSA and REAS will take her.
