About Kathryn Frie, RN, MSN, PHN, ANP-BC, GNP-BC, APNP
Katie Frie grew up outside of Viroqua, Wisconsin. She attended Winona State University pursuing Nursing. During this Undergraduate Nursing Program she worked as a Nurse Technician in a Rural Hospital in Viroqua, Wisconsin. After Graduating from Winona State she moved to Madison, Wisconsin where she worked at University Hospital and Clinics taking care of complex patients on the Inpatient Rehabilitation floor.
Having a passion for building relationships with patients and families drove her to advance her degree in Primary Care as an Adult and Geriatric Nurse Practitioner, graduating from UW Madison School of Nursing in 2011. She is board certified from the ANCC in both Adult and Geriatric Medicine. This has allowed amazing opportunities to care for very complex patients within an Internal Medicine clinic in Winona, Minnesota.
Rural Health, learning, and teaching have always been a passion as she began as an Assistant Professor for her Alma Mater within the Community and Public Health Nursing Educators at Winona State University. As a lifelong learner she is working on her Doctorate Degree in Nursing Practice and Leadership Innovation in Winona, Minnesota.
Katie is married and has three kids and two golden retrievers. In her spare time she and her husband remodel homes and run kids to and from sporting events.
