ALBION, Nebraska (January 27, 2023) – Boone County Health Center (BCHC) is excited to announce that Physician Assistant Shannon Stuhlmiller will join their medical team on March 1, 2023.

Shannon grew up in Albion and understood the impact a family practice medical provider can make inside and outside the clinic walls. “I have always been a person who loves variety. Working in a family practice setting, you encounter different ages, diagnoses, and treatments, as well as caring for people from birth to the end of life. This continuity of care creates an opportunity to make a real difference,” said Shannon.

She completed her undergraduate degree in Exercise Science at Doane University and a Master of Physician Assistant Studies from the University of Nebraska Medical Center. Shannon loves learning and would go to college for life if it weren’t so expensive. “Fortunately, the medical field is constantly advancing and improving, allowing me to continue to learn throughout my career, which makes me super excited,” said Shannon.

Shannon commented when asked why she became interested in the medical field, “I was diagnosed at age 14 with a medical condition that led me to Mayo Clinic in Minnesota for treatment. Going through that process and seeing how much medical professionals can affect a person’s life inspired me to pursue medicine. I hope to have that same positive impact on my patients.”

Shannon is excited to learn from all the experienced medical professionals at BCHC, including Dr. Kusek, who delivered her 28 years ago. BCHC’s Sandy Henry has been a person Shannon has looked up to and turned to for words of wisdom. During her rotation at BCHC, Shannon discovered how well everyone works together and how appreciative patients are. “I am excited to be a part of this caring team and look forward to being an advocate for my patients,” said Shannon.

An interesting fact about Shannon is that she is a master angler in Nebraska. You can find her reading, trying new breweries, watching football games, and spending time with friends and family when she’s not working or fishing.
