BECCA MADES, CNP
Certified Nurse Practitioner | Allina Health | Trained in WALSH Protocol
I am a Board-Certified Family Nurse Practitioner with professional interests in Women's Health, Contraception Management, Weight Management and Pediatrics.
I became a Nurse Practitioner because I enjoy getting to know my patients during the time we spend together. When I was in junior high I knew I wanted to pursue a career in medicine to help people become more whole.
I'm passionate about seeing people progress. There's a sense of accomplishment in moving forward in life and I love that I'm part of that process.
One of the challenges of my career I enjoy is that I'm able to learn something new every day; whether it's about a patient or diagnosis, I get so much life out of learning.
My personal health goal is to eat a healthy diet, stay active and maintain a healthy weight. The best thing I've done for my health is to breastfeed my babies. This has helped to protect the health of myself and my kids. It accelerates recovery from birth, reduces stress and aides in weight loss; reduces the long term risk of many cancers, cardiovascular disease and diabetes.
I'm most proud of my kids. They are my pride and joy, and there is no greater blessing in life.
