” I am very blessed to have spent the past six years working with the Hunkpati Oyate on the Crow Creek Reservation,” said Donna Linke, CNP, MSN. “My career with Horizon will allow me to continue working closely with the communities on the Crow Creek Reservation, which has become my ‘home away from home.’ It will also enable me to share my expertise and expand psychiatric services across rural South Dakota in both Native and non-Native communities.”
