Ilia Haugland, Client Care Coordinator

I was born and raised in Walhalla, N.D. one of six siblings.  I attended Mayville state college and have worked in the financial field for 40 years.  I am married and have 2 children and 4 grandchildren.  I love the lake life and I am an avid vintage and antique guru.  I am very excited to start this new chapter in my life, it is something I always wanted to pursue.  

I grew up most of my life around the elderly, as my mother worked in a nursing home for 40 years.  I took care of both my Parents, Grandfather, Aunt, and my Husbands Grandmother until their passing. And I would say that was my most rewarding achievement to date.  I bring with me the best experience you could have and that is living it.

Rebekah Walvatne, Service Coordinator

Rebekah  Walvatne, Service Coordinator

Rebekah joins our team after four years with Sanford specializing in the administrative side of durable medical equipment and home modifications.

She grew up in Yorktown, Virginia and moved to Fargo with her husband and kids in the summer of 2016, having never even visited the Midwest!

And while the beach holds a special place in her heart, she is starting to appreciate the wonderland that snow brings, but wishes it was for a few less months of the year.

When not at work, she can be found with her two daughters playing sports, tending to their plants and animals, or working on a puzzle.

Three different sports, over fifty houseplants and six animals (including a cat, a bunny, and several reptiles) keep them very busy.


She is looking forward to this new adventure in her role as Service Coordinator and getting to know the staff and clients and how best to pair them up.

She has always held a special place in her heart for long term care and can't wait to make a difference in her community by keeping our seniors safe and in their homes where they belong.
