Fenske named marketing, sales director for StoneyBrook Suites
SIOUX FALLS — Erica Fenske, a native of Sioux Falls, is the new marketing and sales director for StoneyBrook Suites, an assisted living facility with five locally-owned locations in South Dakota.
Fenske received a human sciences major, with emphasis in apparel merchandising, as well as a business minor from South Dakota State University in 2011.
After graduation, Fenske ran multiple women’s shops at Scheel’s for four years, working up to being on the corporate buying team. Following that experience, she entered into a business development role in outside, business-to-business sales for a local marketing company. Shortly thereafter, she was promoted to the Account Executive position, where she oversaw over 250 local business accounts in a three-state region. Within her role, Fenske developed extensive knowledge in digital marketing and sales.
With her background in marketing, sales and management, the team she is joining is confident that Fenske will be a great asset to the StoneyBrook Suites team.
Fenske is excited for this new opportunity to be a part of the current and future success of StoneyBrook Suites. She is happy to join a great team and anxious to meet the residents at their five locally-owned South Dakota locations in Huron, Brookings, Dakota Dunes, Sioux Falls and Watertown.

New pathologist joins HRMC medical staff
HURON — Huron Regional Medical Center announces the addition of Rick Sarli, M.D., board-certified pathologist, to the HRMC medical staff
As HRMC’s pathologist, Sarli supports other medical staff professionals by providing diagnostic services through the examination and interpretation of tests involving body tissues, blood and other body fluids. He also oversees HRMC’s clinical laboratory and blood bank.
“When a physician takes a tissue sample from a patient’s breast or skin, for example, I examine it for disease,” Sarli says. “Other parts of my job include supervising our laboratory technologists, ensuring the quality of laboratory-related testing, offering guidance to physicians as to which tissue and how much to remove for biopsies, and working closely with surgeons during operations when they need pathology services.”
Sarli earned a doctor of medicine at the University of Buenos Aires in Argentina. He completed his internal medicine internship and residency at the University of Pretoria Training Hospitals in Pretoria, South Africa. He also completed fellowships in hematology at the University of Texas Medical School in Houston, Texas, and Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta, Georgia. He is board certified in anatomic and clinical pathology as well as hematopathology/hematology.
Throughout his career, Sarli has practiced pathology in Indiana, Missouri, North Dakota, Pennsylvania and New York. Even after 30 years of practice, he still loves his specialty.
“Pathology encompasses the study of every known disease, which makes it challenging and interesting because there’s always something new to learn,” he says. “Every day, I may have the opportunity to see something I’ve never encountered before.”
Sarli and his wife have three adult children — one lives in Sioux Falls and two live in Fargo — and five grandchildren. Pathology calls for keen attention to detail, a skill Sarli hones when enjoying his hobbies: gardening and restoring historic buildings, particularly Victorian homes.
