After completing her undergraduate degree in Biology at Carleton College in Minnesota, Palmer received her Master of Science in Nursing from Vanderbilt University in Tennessee with a focus on family practice. She is board-certified as a Family Nurse Practitioner by the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners. Palmer moved to the area in 2018 and practiced as a Nurse Practitioner for Gundersen Clinic in Viroqua until joining VMH in early February. Palmer joins the diverse Hirsch Clinic care team and is very eager to continue to develop her practice in Viroqua.
Palmer was raised in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in northwest Connecticut. While her hometown’s population was only 1,200, she immediately felt comfortable in Viroqua as the surrounding ridges and valleys of the Driftless Region reminded her of home. Palmer enjoys outdoor activities and hobbies including gardening, hiking, snowshoeing and foraging, among others, and is already connected with the Vernon County area with her volunteer work with the Friends of Vernon County Parks & Forests and the Viroqua Community Theatre.
