Kayleigh McGlocklin, Administrative Assistant

Kayleigh is our new Administrative Assistant.  She will be focused on patient care and helping Char with the clinic.  

She graduated from Lake Country Lutheran in June 2023. She has lived in Hartland her entire life and loves it!  But she states she hates math!  (It must be a pretty intense hate to mention it. No financial analyzing for her!)   

She loves to paint and spend time curled up with her dogs, Charlie and Sully reading a good book.  One of the most life changing moments is when she got her service dog, Charlie.  He is the sweetest black Poodle you will ever meet.  We know, we have met him. 

She is a huge nite owl and doesn’t like to do anything before 11:30.  A perfect day would be 85 degrees and sunny so she can swim in the lake.
