MY STORY

“I am very good at building consensus.  I believe the best ideas and the best treatment plans come from all parties working together to discover a better plan than any one person could develop alone.

-Christine Whelley    

Christine Whelley grew up in the foothills of the Adirondacks in Boonville, New York, a town of about 2,500 people at the time. After reading a book about Clara Barton as a young girl, she was inspired to pursue a career in nursing. Christine spent over twenty years practicing as a nurse before her family relocated to Wisconsin, where she earned her Master Degree in Nursing and her Family Nurse Practitioner Certificate.

Christine decided to practice at Divine Savior Healthcare because of the organization’s commitment to the Portage community, “The fact that DSH is a charity, their presence for over 100 years, and their commitment to treating all people holistically is something that is very rare in a healthcare today”. She loves the history of Portage, the canal, and the easy access to the Wisconsin waterways.

Christine loves teaching patients about their body, its reaction to disease, and how to minimize that. Her two children are the accomplishments she is most proud of, and she enjoys reading, biking, gardening, and listening to live music in her free time.
