Caroline grew up in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula with a dream to pursue a career in the medical field. She attended Central Michigan University and completed her undergraduate degree in Kinesiology with Cum Laude honors. In concurrence with her studies, she gained experience in the healthcare field by working as an EMT and a Certified Nurse’s Aide. She then attended Physician Assistant school at Central Michigan University. Central Michigan University has historically been ranked as one of the top five Physician Assistant programs in the country. During PA school, the first 15 months are spent mainly in the classroom setting. The second year consists of clinic rotations in various areas of primary care and specialties. In the summer of 2017, Caroline passed the Physician Assistant National Certifying Exam.
In September of 2017, Caroline relocated to Fort Collins to join her significant other, Brendan, who is employed as a Prosthetist and Orthotist at Quorum Prosthetics in Windsor, CO.
Caroline chose the field of Rheumatology because she felt it’s a field where she could truly make a difference. Patients with autoimmune illnesses are often in pain on a daily basis and many of the diseases can cause permanent damage if there is no intervention. Caroline emphasizes continuity of care with her patients and enjoys watching their progression.
Caroline aspires to provide exceptional healthcare to the Northern Colorado community and surrounding states. She listens to patient’s needs and will work with the patient to create an individualized plan of treatment, keeping in mind the main goal of improvement of quality of life and safety. She stays current with the most up-to-date studies and treatment recommendations and is always excited to learn something new in medicine.
Outside of work, Caroline enjoys backpacking, snowboarding, CrossFit, running marathons, golfing, hunting, fishing and mountain biking. She takes pleasure in cooking, trying new foods and traveling to new places. She is also an avid Green Bay Packers fan. Caroline enjoys spending time with family and friends and loves to visit Michigan whenever she can.
