Her next position was with Gundersen Health where she worked as an RN in the ER and later as a nurse practitioner.
Halie loves primary care for the interactive experience of meeting patients at their level of health, stating, “It is a fun variety of pediatrics to geriatrics. I wanted to be able to care for those in the communities I live in and around, so they can continue to enjoy their day to day lives. I was drawn to Waukon for the small-town connection and compassion I have for the area. I am excited to see what new opportunities this clinic can offer the area.”
Halie enjoys educating her patients on preventative medicine and encouraging a healthy lifestyle.
