Shantelle Feragen is a Geriatric Nurse Practitioner at the Abbott Northwestern Hospital, Minneapolis, MN.
What is your practice philosophy? I am passionate about family and living my best life. I feel that if I take of myself and the ones I love, everything else will fall into place.
If I wasn’t a provider, I would be a: teacher. I did not know how much I loved kids until I had them.
One of the challenges of this career that I enjoy is (and why): There is always something new to learn everyday. There is never a dull moment in healthcare or as a provider. It is both challenging and rewarding in a way I never could´ve imagined.
What is the best thing you’ve done for your health or the best health advice you’ve received? I became a vegetarian about 8 years ago. I wasn't feeling well and knew I need to change something so I cut out meat and have felt better ever since. I always respect everyone's choices nutritionally but have found this to be a successful path for me.
What are you most proud of? I am most proud of my children. My daughter is an aspiring doctor who won't take no for an answer. My son is an aspiring marine biologist with with an incredible amount of empathy for anything that breathes.
