Susan is a board certified Family Nurse Practitioner. After receiving her Bachelor of Science degree from Viterbo University in Wisconsin, she went on to attend Graceland University where she earned her Master’s Degree in Nursing. Her experience includes the treatment of many patients with various backgrounds from birth to over 100 years of age as well as over eleven years of experience as a family nurse practitioner with a background in primary care, hospital medicine, telemedicine, emergency medicine and urgent care.
