Recently, Schulte earned a Master of Science in Nursing degree from the University of Southern Indiana in Evansville, Indiana. She is also a graduate from the Cleveland Clinic Wound Ostomy Continence training program and holds certifications both as a Certified Wound Ostomy Continence Nurse as well as a Certified Foot and Nail Care Nurse.

At the Lakeland Center for Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine, a team of dedicated wound care specialists meet with patients suffering from severe wounds to develop a specialized treatment plan focused on speeding up a patient’s healing process. As specialists in wound care, medical professionals offer cutting-edge products and treatments to promote optimum healing including hyperbaric oxygen therapy – a proven method to help heal damaged tissue by exposing a patient’s body to 100 percent oxygen in a pressurized environment.
In December 2015, the Lakeland Center for Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine became the fifth health system in Michigan, and one of less than 250 in the nation, to become fully accredited by the Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society (UHMS).
