Wisconsin's 8th Congressional District

Meet Kristin

Kristin’s family has deep roots in dairy farming and the paper industry.

She learned from a young age how to show up for her community. She was a young mother when she entered medical school at the University of Wisconsin, relying on the help of neighbors and friends to balance the demands of home, work, and school. During her training, she received multiple awards for exemplary performance, teaching, and clinical practice.

By the time she graduated with her M.D. and a Master’s in Public Health, Kristin had four kids under the age of 10. Despite being told that obstetrics and gynecology could be a difficult concentration for someone with a busy home life, Kristin was called to care for women and their families.

Kristin developed a career serving as an OB/GYN and small business owner.

She has practiced in Green Bay, Oconto, Marinette, and later Sheboygan. Kristin also regularly travels hundreds of miles to provide a wide range of health care services to rural and underrepresented communities in Minnesota and Arizona.

When the U.S. Supreme Court stripped away women’s access to abortion, Kristin stood up and fought back. She was the named plaintiff in the case that brought abortion care back to Wisconsin following the reenactment of an antiquated 1849 Wisconsin abortion law post Dobbs. And as the country watched women’s freedoms being taken from them, Kristin started speaking out.

Kristin regularly contributes to local and national conversations about access to rural healthcare, IVF, abortion, menopause, and all facets of reproductive rights.

She’s seen the role doctors play in their communities and has watched as those roles have been jeopardized by extreme politicians who think they know better than the professionals.

Kristin also works with medical students at the Medical College of Wisconsin-Green Bay and is an active and award winning member with the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), known for her effective leadership and outstanding contributions. With ACOG, Kristin worked with other leaders in the medical field to create guidance for healthcare providers on how to continue providing quality, supportive healthcare to women across the state when threats to access became the reality.

Kristin is now running for Congress because she believes it is pivotal to have a pro-patient, pro-choice OB/GYN in the U.S. House.

Millions of American women deserve an advocate at a time when a small number of people in Washington have so much power but so little understanding of the realities of women’s health care. And Kristin will always lead with a community-first mindset – because as she knows from her own life, when we look out for one another and lift each other up, our community is stronger for it.
