Our new RN: Autumn Fallgatter!


My name is Autumn Fallgatter. I grew up in Steele on a farm and ranch where my parents, Marty and Sandi Janke, still live.

I attended the University of Mary in Bismarck where I received my Bachelor's of Science in Nursing degree in 2016. I have spent the last 6 years working in the Intensive Care Unit at Sanford Health in Bismarck.

By happenstance my now husband, Brighton Fallgatter, farms and ranches in Steele. As a result, I have ventured my way back to Steele, a place I have come to love and appreciate. Brighton and I have one son, Oliver, who I am proud to raise in my hometown.

I am very excited to serve the community as a nurse at the Kidder County District Health Unit!

Autumn started August 8th and will train with Mary Ellen Strand prior to Mary Ellen's retirement. Stop in and help us welcome her back to Kidder County!

These challenges have led to a recent increase in the number of farmers taking their own lives. Experts discuss warning signs of suicide and how communities can help farmers and their families address mental health concerns."
