Hello, my name is Lisa Gehrke and I am the Democratic candidate for Salt Lake County council's 3rd district. I am a lifelong resident of Salt Lake County. I grew up in South Salt Lake, attended Granite High School and graduated from Westminster College with a bachelor’s degree in nursing. I am a product of our public schools as is my son who graduated from Taylorsville high school. I have been working as a nurse at Huntsman Cancer Hospital since 2010, specializing in hematological cancers and bone marrow transplant. I served as the chair of our unit's clinical practice council for the last two years where I coordinated nurse lead initiatives to improve patient outcomes, increase staff and patient satisfaction, decrease material waste, and provide better overall care for those we serve.
