Katie Gisleson, RDH, MHEA
Full-time Dental Hygiene instructor Katie Gisleson teaches a wide variety of didactic courses and labs, and spends many hours in the clinic helping students with the hands-on application of their skills. In 2003, she received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Human Resource Management from the University of Northern Iowa, but then decided she had a different calling in life. She went back to school and graduated from Hawkeye Community College in 2007 with her Associate of Applied Science degree in Dental Hygiene. Prior to working at Hawkeye, Gisleson worked full time in a private practice in Manchester, Iowa. She was then given the opportunity to work as a clinical adjunct for a semester and teach a few lectures. Bitten by the education bug, she was inspired her to complete her master’s in higher education administration from Upper Iowa University in 2015.
