Meet Our Team
We have a diverse team of instructors with medical knowledge from all over healthcare.
Cortnee Hansen, Owner and Instructor
Hello everyone! I have been in nursing for over 25 years working clinic, hospital and EMS in the Twin Cities. I started teaching CPR and other medical classes in a college setting and loved it so much that I started CPR Professionals in 2005. I have two great kids and love the flexibility of teaching so that I can homeschool them. I love to travel and ATV with my family.
Molly Martin, Instructor
Hi, my name is Molly Martin. I have been a Licensed Dental Assistant for 19+yrs. I am currently a FT supervisor at a liquor store. I just passed my Certified Personal Trainer program with ISSA and am looking forward to continuing onto my Corrective Exercise Specialist and Nutritionist programs.
When I'm not teaching with CPR Professionals, working or going to school, I like to spend time with my four kids. We have a 9yo, 6yo, and both my fiancé and I have a 4yo! We like to go camping, watch movies, play cards and games.

During the day, I am a Training and Development Specialist with the state of Minnesota. I have 30+ years of experience working in various capacities of social services. In my free time I like to spend time with my family, cook, run, and travel.
Bryan Sullivan, Instructor
Hello, I'm Bryan Sullivan. I have been teaching and studying emergency medicine for over 30 years. I began as a NREMT-B, but quickly determined that full-time emergency medicine was not where my future was going, so I switched gears toward preventive medicine where I have been a chiropractor for over 25 years.
Recently I've semi-retired from clinical work and now teach in the Health Care Magnet Program at Osseo High School.
I currently reside in Brooklyn Park with my wife and whatever kids aren’t away at college or following their adult dreams. I love getting outside whenever I can, especially camping and geocaching, and I am obsessed with all things nerdy.
Paul Omland, Instructor
Hi! My name is Paul and I have been with Cortnee for 7 years. I am a huge family man and love spending my free time with them whenever I can. I am also a huge lover of sports. Now that my three children have aged out of playing sports, I get go golfing more.
Barb Meissen, Instructor
Hey everyone. I’m Barb and I have been an RN for 20 years. I am a wife and mom of 3 girls. I love being in the outdoors. Fishing, camping, hiking and boating are just a few things my family enjoys. My favorite season is fall. Mostly because I love football.
Currently, I spend most of time being a traveling nurse and that is how I first met Cortnee. I have a passion for helping people and being able to educate others is one of them.
I look forward to teaching you one day!
Sara Brown, Marketing and Instructor
Hi, I'm Sara Brown. I have been in sales for most of my career and began marketing for CPR Professionals over 5 years ago. Becoming an instructor was a natural fit for me as I am extremely passionate about health and wellness. My kids are my whole world. The are 17 & 16. They keep me busy and grounded at the same time. My claim to fame, I had two full term babies; before my first mother's day! (Let that sink in) I am a MS warrior and know where my strength comes from. (Phillipians 4:13 I can do all things from him who gives me strength)
