“I’m still getting situated, but I’ve really felt a warm embrace from everyone here,” smiled Gundersen Palmer Lutheran’s newest face, Carina Crookston.  “I am beyond excited to start seeing patients!” 

While Crookston, a Minnesota native, had always had an interest in the medical field, her first area of interest when she attended college was in the business/finance field.

“When I started college, I hadn’t considered this field for myself,” the energetic blonde explained with a grin.  

“I had been telling my brothers for awhile that they should look into this field,” she continued. “One of my younger brothers finally said that if I was so interested in medicine, I should try it out!” 

The oldest of eleven children, Crookston knows what it’s like to care for others.  

“Even though I hadn’t officially considered this field when I first started college, I can say that I found an interest in it when I was around 12-years-old after my sister, Amy, was diagnosed with a brain tumor when she was young,” she related quietly.  

“That journey really made me appreciate life and see how much of a miracle it is,” she added.  “I have always thought of Amy as my guardian angel; that kind of spirituality keeps me grounded and helps me with some of the obstacles I face in this field.” 

While she officially began seeing patients this week, Crookston has been a part of the Gundersen system for a little bit longer, as she attended orientation for a few days prior to getting situated in her West Union office.
