Born and raised in rural Nebraska, Krystal developed an unending love for small, meaningful relationships. She spent many hours in the local nursing home during high school and college working as a nurses’ aide. Krystal graduated from Nebraska Wesleyan University in 2002 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Biology. In 2004 she completed her Masters of Physician Assistant Studies from the University of Nebraska Medical center in 2004. She began her career in rural Kansas with two doctors and one other PA. “It was there in this small town that I gained invaluable experience working in the clinic, emergency room (first on-call responsibilities), hospital and nursing home settings, as well as newborn care,” states Krystal.
Nearly eight years and two children later, Krystal and her husband felt a strong desire to get back home, to Nebraska. Most recently Krystal worked in a primary care clinic in Crete, NE. She spent 8 years there sharpening her clinical skills. Krystal has studied the DPC model and believes in the core values and mission of our office. Krystal states, “It is a privilege to care for people,” she goes on to say, “there is no greater honor and responsibility than for people to trust you with their health. I recognize and value that privilege, trust, and that relationship.”
