Provider Bio down arrow

​​Emily Rude worked as a nurse for several years and, after enjoying that experience so much, knew she wanted to take the next step in her career.

“I loved my time as a nurse, working closely with physicians and nurse practitioners,” Emily said. “After working with so many great nurse practitioners, I was encouraged to take the next step and become one myself.”​​

​​One of Emily’s passions is preventative health care.

“Prevention is really important to me because it improves patient quality-of-life,” Emily said.​​

​​As part of her preventative approach, Emily enjoys helping patients with weight management.

​​“Motivating people to get them to feel they are in charge of their own health is a really exciting part of my work,” Emily said.

She hopes patients see her as open, welcoming and eager to work with them to achieve their health care goals.​​

Emily earned her bachelor’s degree in nursing and her Doctor of Nursing Practice degree from the University of Wisconsin – Eau Claire (UWEC). She also holds a bachelor’s degree in psychology from UWEC and is a member of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners.​​

Emily loves to travel and spending time with family. She has been to India, France, England, Scotland and other countries around the globe. Emily has two children.​​
