Provider Bio down arrow

​Rachael Haupt-Harrington was first inspired by her mother to become a nurse.

Rachael worked as an obstetrics nurse, women’s health nurse  practitioner and NICU nurse manager for several years with Marshfield Clinic Health System. She also spent some of her career teaching with the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire nursing program. In the back of her mind however, she had a lifelong interest in genetics that she wanted to pursue.

“I never even fathomed there would be a nurse practitioner position in genetics,” she said. “In this role, I’m able to combine all my interests – genetics, nursing, teaching and caring for others.”

In medical genetics, Rachael assesses her patients, identifies genetic risks, orders testing and helps to manage treatment and ongoing care. As new evidence and research becomes  available, Rachael works with her team to continually help improve screening and personalize care for her patients.

With her previous experience, she has special interest in pediatrics and women’s health, but cares for patients of all ages and conditions.

“I’m here to help find answers for families and be their support system,” she said. “It’s my relationships with my patients, and being able to help them, that really matters.”

Rachael received her Master of Science in Nursing from the University of Tennessee-Knoxville and earned her Doctor of Nursing Practice from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire in 2012.

She met her husband, Tom, in Tennessee, and the couple raises their two daughters in Marshfield. She enjoys spending time with her family.
