“Being a CRNA enables me to do what I love doing, which is personally care for patients. It’s also an opportunity for me to learn from my amazing coworkers and make a small difference in the lives of our patients.” – Emily

Emily started her career as a registered nurse in 2005, working in the surgical setting and ICU for six years. She has been practicing as a CRNA since 2014 and joined Dr. Claussen’s practice in 2016. Emily enjoys the nuances of every patient, knowing that everyone’s treatment will be different. She feels lucky to be part of a fantastic team that delivers personalized, professional, and most importantly, safe patient care.
