Q&A with Morgan

As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?

Initially a vet and then a Physician Assistant before realizing I loved caring for the healthcare system itself and love projects which steered me away from patient care.

What can patients expect when they see you in the clinic?

Likely to see me holding a cup of coffee and trying to stay out of the way of our awesome care team.

When you’re not working, what do you like to do for fun?

I love snowboarding, traveling and getting outdoors. I recently picked up mountain biking and am pretty hooked on it. I am usually in the middle of several home improvement projects at any given time. I like to stay busy!

What are your favorite ways of staying healthy?

Yoga and the gym are my go-to activities for maintaining my health on a busy schedule. I have a daughter who is a wonderful cook and helps me eat healthy. My dog teaches me how to take it easy and enjoy quiet moments.

Where is your hometown?

Stillwater, MN. Wonderful small town feel with a beautiful downtown area on the St. Croix River. Great hiking and restaurants.

What is your favorite thing about living in Minnesota?

It is currently mid-April and snowing which makes this question hard to answer! Minnesota has beautiful summers and fall seasons and plenty of winter activities. I love Minnesota for those reasons and tolerate its “spring time”.
