Karlyn 1

Karlyn enjoys working with patients who are self-confident and engaged in their own care. However, she realizes that not everyone looks forward to visits with a health care provider. Some people have felt unheard or disrespected. Karlyn approaches each person by actively listening, treating her patients as equal partners, offering her expertise, and then respecting each patient’s goals. She strives to build trust and make a connection at every visit.


Karlyn earned her BSN and MS in Nursing from the University of Minnesota. She received her Nurse-Midwifery certification from the American College of Nurse-Midwives in 2000, and is an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant *
