Cindy Kent

I presently serve as the Chief Nursing Officer for Essentia Health.   I have a long history as a Registered Nurse  with Essentia Health.  Most of my nursing career has been  focused on the care of children, both in Neonatal ICU and Pediatrics and Pediatric Intensive Care.

I am a native Duluthian and Denfeld High School Grad.  I received my nursing education at St. Luke’s School of Nursing in Duluth and eventually my Master of Science in Health Services Administration from the College of St. Francis in Joliet, Illinois.  My husband Dave and I have two grown, married children Elizabeth (Ben) Webber and Ryan (Ramona) Kent.  We also love our yellow lab – Lily.
