“With this opportunity at Essentia Health, I found a strong focus on teamwork, and that was very attractive to me,” says Bakke. “The goal here is to provide patient-centered care by working together to serve the community.”

Bakke earned a master’s degree in physician assistant studies from Bethel University in St. Paul, Minnesota. She is certified by the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants.

“One reason I chose cardiology as my specialty is because we have the opportunity to treat the whole patient while emphasizing the maintenance and improvement of cardiovascular health,” explains Bakke. “I really enjoy working alongside my patients and their families to achieve their health goals.”
