Provider Bio down arrow

Susan Trudeau grew up with an intimate knowledge of Marshfield Clinic. Her mother worked for the Clinic, as did Trudeau for one year after graduating from high school. Her interest in medicine took her away to school, then back to the Clinic to work for 13 years as an electroneurodiagnostic technologist.​​

“The brain and the way it operates fascinates me,” said Trudeau. “While in graduate school for nursing, I took advantage of the opportunity to join Sleep Medicine in 1998.” As a nurse practitioner, she has helped to treat Sleep Medicine patients.​​

​​Trudeau said that a major part of her job is educating both patients and their doctors. “Conditions such as sleep apnea can lead to moodiness, difficulty concentrating, forgetfulness, heart disease, high blood pressure and other ailments,” she explained. “We often get referrals from other specialists, so we work to stay abreast of the latest research.”

​​She also enjoys following up on the progress of her patients. “Patient care is an ongoing process, building on the educational foundation we have already laid,” she said. “It is especially gratifying when a family member reports that their loved one is responding to treatment and getting better.”

​​Trudeau earned her graduate degree from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. She is board certified as a family nurse practitioner.

​​She and her husband, Fred, reside in Marshfield. She enjoys golfing, traveling and visits to the family cabin.
