  • Fank, CNA

    ''I have lived in North Dakota my whole life. I graduated from Century High School in 2018 and obtained my CNA certification in 2016 at Bismarck State College during that time. When I am not at the Dakota Foot and Ankle Clinic, you can find me hanging with friends and family and my dog Spencer.''
