Provider Bio

​​Dr. Kathleen Finta’s desire to pursue pediatric medicine arose from personal experience. She said, “My pediatrician was a gentle and caring man. He was a great influence on my life.”

She later focused on cardiology as a subspecialty because, “It allows the opportunity to manage critically ill children in the hospital and then follow their progress over time as outpatients.”

Dr. Finta joined Marshfield Clinic in 1992. She evaluates and treats children with conditions such as heart murmurs, structural heart abnormalities, palpitations, rhythm abnormalities, chest pain, dizziness and high cholesterol. She also evaluates fetuses who are at increased risk for cardiac issues following birth. “Marshfield Clinic offers an opportunity to practice high-quality medicine in a rural community,” she said.

Dr. Finta earned her medical degree at the Johns Hopkins University-School of Medicine, Baltimore. She served her internship and residency at Baylor College of Medicine Affiliated Hospitals, Houston. She completed fellowships in pediatric cardiology and cardiovascular physiology at the University of Michigan Medical Center, Ann Arbor.

She and her husband, Tom, have two children. She enjoys outdoors activities, reading and spending time with her family.
