Steve Rasmussen returns to Wisconsin roots
Steve Rasmussen grad-uated from West De Pere High School in 2005 and headed off to UW-Stevens Point to major in biology and study abroad for a stint in Poland. His early interests blossomed from there: he took his passion for learning and channeled it into medical school at the University of Iowa in Iowa City. The fellow American he met while studying abroad became his fiancée. While loving every step along the way, which included residency in Duluth, Minn., and extended work in New Zealand and Tanzania, he always knew his heart was in Wisconsin. Steve Rasmussen, MD, is a very happy man as the newest family practice doctor to join ThedaCare Physicians-Ripon. The strongest vibe one gets from speaking to Dr. Rasmussen is warmth, humor and just the right amount of confidence. “My mom’s nursing career and mothering exposed me to caregiving, and my dad worked in real estate and organizational development. He taught me about dedication, planning and focus,” he said.
