“Caring for patients is even more special when it’s people you’ve known or grown up with. I was born and raised in Northeast Iowa and am happy to be able to give back to the communities that helped shape who I am today,” states Krista. “I became a medical provider because I felt a call to make a difference in the lives of others.  I enjoyed working as a critical care nurse, but wanted to advance my education in order to have a greater understanding of the complexities of managing illness in all ages.  I am committed to be an advocate for and provide the best care possible for every patient.”

Lori states “After working 28 years in acute care, I felt there was a need for additional providers in this area.  I am compassionate about meeting the healthcare needs of patients of all ages, making sure they get the care they need,” explains Lori.  “Taking the time to listen to patient concerns and allowing them to participate in their health care decisions is crucial. Making sure the patient takes ownership and understands the plan, impacts their wellness.”

 “I like helping people, sorting out their problems, and working on health maintenance and wellness,” adds Lori.  “I wanted to join the Veterans Memorial Hospital team because of their positive reputation in the community.  I enjoy coming here. We have really grown just since I started in January and our plan is to continue adding services.”
