Inger Lisa Skroder MN, ARNP
Inger Lisa Skroder began her nursing career in her home city of Vancouver, Canada. Ms. Skroder graduated from the Vancouver General Hospital School of Nursing in 1989 and began working as a nurse in Florida shortly thereafter. After many years of working in various South Florida hospitals, Inger Lisa moved to Seattle in 1996 to continue her education in medicine. In 1997 she completed her Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) at the University of Washington, Bothell Campus, which was then rated the “#1 School of Nursing” by the U.S. News & World Report. Immediately after graduation she began working on her Masters Degree.
In 1998 Inger Lisa returned to Florida to complete her Masters thesis and perform her final clinical practicum with Dr. King.

At the Miami International Airport Office, Inger Lisa was in charge of overseeing the medical care and wellbeing of American Airline pilots, flight attendants, ground crews and other American Airline support employees.
Inger Lisa dreamed of creating an air ambulance company that would be unique in the fact that it would be the only Air Ambulance company owned and operated by licensed and actively practicing healthcare providers. In February 1999, that dream was realized when she formed Trinity Air Ambulance International with Dr. King and her business partner and brother Tor Skroder.
