Erica Linn developed an interest in cardiology, autism and autoimmune disorders
After earning an associate degree in nursing from Cardinal Stritch University, Erica Linn worked as a registered nurse at the Zablocki V.A. Medical Center. Eight years later, she earned her Master of Science in Nursing from the University of St. Francis and became a family nurse practitioner. While studying to become a family nurse practitioner, she began to work more with children, sparking her passion for treating children with disorders such as autism.
While working at the Zablocki V.A. Medical Center, Erica spent four years in the coronary care unit, where she developed a passion for cardiology. She realized that many of the cardiac issues she encountered could be avoided through the use of preventive medicine.
Erica also became passionate about autoimmune disorders. After she struggled with undiagnosed thyroid issues, Erica found relief with functional medicine. This experience made her realize how many patients with chronic conditions fall through the cracks, so she joined our functional medicine clinic near Milwaukee.
Today Erica gives men and women the full range of treatment options. In addition to offering effective alternative treatments, Erica can prescribe medication. She uses well-researched alternatives and conventional treatments to help patients achieve lasting health and wellness. As part of this goal, Erica is working on her doctorate in nursing practice at the University of Wisconsin.
