Janelle Kyllo, Emergency Medicine

Physician Assistant Janelle Kyllo has joined the Emergency Medicine Department at Essentia Health St. Mary’s-Detroit Lakes in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota.

Kyllo grew up in nearby Larimore, North Dakota, and looks forward to starting her practice in Detroit Lakes. “I chose this opportunity because I believe in the mission and values of Essentia Health,” she explains. “I was excited to move closer to home and still have the opportunity to live in a rural area that has a wide variety of amenities.”

Kyllo earned a master’s degree in physician assistant studies from Wichita State University in Wichita, Kansas. She is certified by the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants.

“I like emergency medicine because there is always a variety of patients, and one day is never like the next,” says Kyllo.
