PGI Residents

Anjali Best
Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine, Midwestern University


Professional Interests:My favorite part about family medicine is being able to take the time to get to know your patients, and being able to follow them and their families longitudinally. My special interests in family medicine are obstetrics, pediatrics & adolescent medicine, and addiction medicine.


Personal Interests:I love traveling whenever possible! I also enjoy spending time with my husband, family, and friends, shopping, exercising, and laying in bed watching tv!



Kelsey Bierdeman
University of Illinois at Rockford, College of Medicine


Professional Interests:I love all areas of medicine, hence the reason I chose family medicine! My favorite part of being a family medicine physician is getting to develop long-term relationships with my patients, and being able to take care of the entire family from infants to grandparents. One of my specific areas of interest is naturally family planning.


Personal Interests:I recently got married, and I am enjoying life with my husband in our new home! We are new to the area, and love discovering the fun Waukesha has to offer, including local restaurants and outdoor activities.



Jaclyn Hastings
University of Illinois at Rockford, College of Medicine


Professional Interests:I am passionate about Family Medicine because it's the first line of defense against illness and injuries. The family doctor must identify problems early and intervene, which is both challenging and rewarding. I also appreciate the close doctor-patient relationships formed in family medicine. Being from a small farming town in Illinois, I have a special interest in rural medicine and full-spectrum family medicine.


Personal Interests:In my free time, I enjoy thrifting, fixing things, and playing fetch with my Abyssinian cat, Eva. Given more time, I like to visit friends or head down to my family's house in the sunny Florida Keys to fish, bike, paddle-board, and listen to live music.



Stephanie Jones
Medical College of Wisconsin


Professional Interests:I was drawn in by the specialty of Family Medicine through the quality patient relationships that come with having continuity of care with my patients, but also by the wide scope of practice a Family Physician can offer to their patients. My specific areas of interest include Women's Health and maternity care, in-office procedures, and community health particularly in regards to chronic disease prevention and other preventive care services.


Personal Interests:When I'm not working, I enjoy staying active in many different ways- hiking, running, and playing volleyball and other sports. I like to find new ways to be creative with cooking, and also enjoy spending time with family and hanging out on the couch with my cat!



Eric Kuehn
Medical College of Wisconsin


Professional Interests:Family Medicine is the ideal fit for me particularly because it gives me the opportunity to follow patients through all walks of life. I really enjoy forming long term and personal relationships with patients, which can go a long way when caring for them. Furthermore, Family Medicine will give me the opportunity to tailor and focus my future practice to the things I enjoy most. I love everything about primary care, but if I had to pin down some things that I particularly enjoy, I would say sports medicine, urgent care, and outpatient procedures.


Personal Interests:Outside of the medical world I enjoy a wide variety of activities and try to relax as much as possible with my time off. From working on cars to juggling, I enjoy trying to be well rounded and I am always open to new things. I particularly like watching sports, running, playing pool, and being with my dogs. All that being said, there isn't anything that beats spending time with family.



Jessica Miller
University of Wisconsin, School of Medicine


Professional Interests:I enjoy many areas of medicine but am especially interested in women's health and obstetrics, pediatrics and sports medicine. Prior to medical school and residency, I worked as a humanitarian aid worker for several years and remain passionate about public and global health. I am excited to practice full scope family medicine in rural Wisconsin and internationally!


Personal Interests:Anything outdoors! I especially love to hike, backpack and kayak - my husband and son are great hiking buddies and we're always looking for new national and state parks to explore. I also love to travel and experience new areas, foods and cultures.

Jennifer Zeman,
University of Iowa, College of Medicine


Professional Interests:

I enjoy every aspect of medicine, which is what made family medicine a perfect fit for me, but I’m very passionate about women’s health and obstetrics. Ever since deciding to be a doctor, my dream has been to practice family medicine in a small town back in Iowa and be able to keep a busy clinic as well as do obstetrics. I am also interested in international medicine and speak Spanish, so I am hoping to do some work in Spanish speaking countries during my time here, as well as working with the Spanish speaking patients that come into clinic!

 


Personal Interests:

I love to travel (Ireland is my favorite so far!) and explore new places. I also love to ride my bike and am looking forward to checking out Milwaukee’s trails. To unwind I embrace my inner old lady and crochet and knit, read a good book, play board games with my friends, and take naps. I geek out over Harry Potter, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, and Star Wars and I’m always looking for a new series to dive into

Christopher Bermudez,
Medical College of Wisconsin


Professional Interests:

I was drawn to Family Medicine because I believe that keeping people healthy is the best medicine. Professionally, I hope to practice preventive medicine as much as possible. That said for patients already dealing with various illnesses, I hope to help them get as close to their baseline health as possible. At the same time I hope to help them make changes to their lifestyle and medical plan so that they are able to prevent any chronic disease processes from worsening and any new disease processes from developing. Finally, I am interested in sports medicine, but not just for athletes. I would like to promote an active lifestyle for all my patients. Sometimes this is difficult because people have a physical or psychological difficulty pursing active lifestyle choices. My goal is to try to help all my patients, regardless of their current ability or background, find a way to pursue an active life to the best of their abilities and hopefully a healthier one.
