“I love to teach and enjoy the opportunity to provide patients with the best resources available.”
Kelly Olson has a fascination with the
heart. As long as she can remember, she
wanted to someday work in health care
and specifically in cardiology. That dream
is now a reality for Olson as she helps heart
care patients every day at Marshfield Clinic
Rice Lake Center as a cardiology nurse
practitioner. Working alongside M. Diaa
Alaoua, heart care patients in northwest
Wisconsin are in good hands.
“I love my job,” she says. “Working to make
a difference in the day to day care of heart
care patients is so rewarding. Working with
such a wonderful physician and staff at
Marshfield Clinic is an added bonus.”
Olson, a Chetek resident, is very familiar with northwest Wisconsin. She spent 13 years
working at Lakeview Medical Center before joining Marshfield Clinic in October of 2011. She received her undergraduate degree from
Viterbo College in La Crosse, WI. In 2011 she
earned her master’s degree in nursing from UW-Eau Claire. Her experience includes six and a half years as a nurse in the Lakeview Medical Center Emergency Department followed by nearly two years as a nurse practitioner in the same department
She is impressed with the dedication of Marshfield Clinic providers and staff. “There are so many wonderful employees at Marshfield Clinic all working toward the common goal of providing excellent patient experiences,” she said. “I am honored to call them my work family.”
Olson’s own family includes her husband and two children, a son and daughter.
She enjoys running, fishing and watching the Green Bay Packers.
