Pauline has been a Family Nurse Practitioner for 15 years with emphasis on family centered care of adults and children focusing on wellness, reduction of cardiovascular risks, and disease prevention. Children have always held a special place in her heart, particularly children and families who struggle with weight issues. In 2005, while employed at ProHealth Care, her passion for helping children and their families reach an optimal level of health led to her developing Healthy ‘n Fit Families.
In 2006, she began working alongside Dr. Tara Dall, Board Certitifed Diplomate of Clinical Lipidolgy. Pauline has been a Diplomate of the Accreditation Council of Clinical Lipidology & Clinical Lipid Specialist since 2007. Her life’s work has centered on cardiovascular risk reduction of men, women and children of all ages. I am particularly interested in reducing cardiovascular risk of men, women and children with insulin resistance and metabolic syndrome through correction of the disease process and lifestyle change leading to weight loss. She is one of few lipid specialists nationally treating pediatric dyslipidemias.
Pauline has a special interest in advanced lipid testing and B Mode ultrasound technology (CIMT), metabolic syndrome, insulin resistance, polycystic ovarian syndrome and pediatric obesity. She was an active participant in CIMT research headed by Dr. James Stein of UW-Madison. She believes strongly in being an educator and serves as clinical preceptor for Alverno College and Concordia University Nurse Practitioner students.
As a mother of three and a full-time nurse practitioner, my approach to counseling patients takes into consideration the time constraints and stresses that most people today face on a daily basis. I recognize each patient is different and respect that individuality. Therefore I approach care of my patients in a nonjudgmental and understanding manner. I realize parents know their child best, and my role as a healthcare provider is to utilize that strength and work with the family to enhance the well being of your child.
