She will see patients on the second floor of the Ahrens Medical Arts Building at 202 4th Avenue in Grinnell, adjacent to Grinnell Regional Medical Center.

George completed her undergraduate education at Mercy College of Health Sciences in Des Moines followed by her graduate degree at Clarkson College in Omaha, Nebraska. She has more than 20 years of surgical nursing experience and is board certified by the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners.

“I want my patients to know that I value their voice when making decisions about their care journey,” says George. “It’s important to me that I care for my patients in a way that I would want myself, my family or friends to be treated.”
