  • HERKIMER — Valley Health Services in Herkimer recently welcomed Ashley Lundquist, R.N., as its cardiac rehabilitation nurse.
    Lundquist attended Mohawk High School and continued her education to successfully receive a bachelor’s degree from SUNYIT in psychology in 2008 and a bachelor’s degree in nursing in 2012.
    “I truly look forward to what each day will bring in cardiac rehab at VHS,” Lundquist said in a news release. “As a nurse, this position allows me to fulfill many different roles, such as an educator, personal trainer, counselor and an overall health coach. I enjoy using these different aspects to guide cardiac patients in the right direction post heart surgery.”
    Prior to joining VHS, Lundquist worked on a cardiothoracic progressive care unit, and said, “I’m actually working with the same population of patients, but just at a different phase in the process. It is very interesting to be on the other side and watch patients overcome the challenges that follow a major cardiac event, and I feel very privileged to be in the unique position to help our patients lead a new life filled with exercise, heart healthy eating and overall wellness.”
    A lifelong resident of the Mohawk Valley, Lundquist resides in Clinton and is looking forward to her marriage in October at Disney World in Florida, the release said.
