  Who is Who





 
 Mary Landwehr, MD

I was born and raised in the countryside outside of Frankfurt, Germany. Since my mother is from Minnesota, I visited my grandparents often and came to see the Midwest as my home away from home. I entered medical school thinking I was going to spend time in Africa working with aid and relief projects. Plans changed, and during my final year of medical school I joined my grandparents for a few months. During that time I lived in rural Minnesota and had the fortune to work with a wonderful family doctor. His practice style and his close connections with his patients deeply impressed me. The concept of family practice, taking care of the entire family and being able to see patients in the clinic and the hospital, providing care when and where patients needed care to be given, made perfect sense to me. My husband and I came to the US in the fall of 1999 and I started training in Family Medicine at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester. Our two wonderful daughters were born. After residency we moved to Chippewa Falls. My husband plunged into stay-at home-dad stardom and I was fortunate to join Family Health Associates whom I worked with for 7 years until I opened up my own practice at Sunrise Family Care Clinic in 2010. My interests outside of work include spending time with my family outdoors in the summer and winter, horseback riding, reading and traveling. Improving the health of the community we live in is very important to me and I am fortunate to be able and share in community health projects in Chippewa County. We as a family love the Chippewa Valley and feel very much at home here among this wonderful fun and friendly community!

She moved to Wisconsin to obtain her masters degree in Nursing at the University of Wisconsin, Eau Claire in May 1994. Building on her nursing degree, she continued her education by obtaining her Family Nurse Practitioner Certification from the University of Massachusetts, Boston in 2015. In her spare time, Ann likes to spend time reading and gardening.





  Monica, RN

I was born and raised in Chippewa Falls. I love this area, so I returned here after college. Becoming a nurse has been a lifetime dream. I received my BSN at UW Oshkosh, graduating in 1982. As a new grad, my first job experience was an 8 year stint at Bloomer Community Hospital, where I was fortunate to have learned a great deal from seasoned nurses in all aspects of nursing. I then took a position at St.Joseph’s Hospital, where I worked for 20 years. Now an experienced med/surg OER and ambulatory care department. 6/2010 I was fortunate to be accepted here at Sunrise Family Care Clinic. I am married and have two wonderful sons whom we are so proud of. Our oldest is a graduate of UW Stout with an Environmental Science degree and has a job as a licensed Arborist. Our youngest is studying at UW Steven’s Point, and he has also joined the Naval Reserves. My interests outside work include travel, reading, crafts, walking, and time spent on my hammock. I am blessed to have been chosen for this position, giving me the opportunity to work with Dr.Landwehr in meeting and caring for patients here at Sunrise Family Care Clinic.      




 
  Nina, RN

Hello, my name is Nina and I am one of the full-time RN’s here at Sunrise Family Care Clinic. This year, I will be enjoying my fifth year working for Dr.Landwehr. I have studied nursing at UWEC and CVTC as well as Psychology at UW-Stout. Before coming to work with Dr. Landwehr, I worked in Labor and Delivery at St. Joseph’s Hospital for 12 years. I have been married to my husband Jim for 37 years and we have three children. Our two girls are grown, finished with college and off on their own. Our son is graduating from high school and will be heading off to college this year. When I am not working at the clinic, you can find me walking our dog, a Blue Heeler/Border Collie mix, cooking for friends and family, hiking, gardening, reading, or attending local music venues. I am so happy to be a member of Dr. Mary’s healthcare team! As well as being an excellent physician, she has a wonderful and close relationship with all her patients. In today’s health care world, that is a rarity and I am thrilled to be part of it! We have a great bunch of people here at the Clinic, and everyone is committed to doing the best job we can for our patients.



                         Hannah, RN

I grew up in Edgar, Wisconsin and came to the Chippewa Valley to attend college at UWEC in 2010. I graduated from their nursing program in May of 2014 and have spent the last few years in public health, ministry work, and motherhood. My family and I live here in Chippewa Falls and we love our community. My favorite ways to spend time outside of work are chasing/kissing/tickling/playing with my daughter, laughing with my husband, practicing photography, and taking long walks with my family. I am so very blessed to work alongside the amazing team here at Sunrise!
