Ashlie Dushek, PA-C joins Urgent Care team

In August, Mile Bluff also welcomed Ashlie Dushek, PA-C to the Emergency & Urgent Care team.

For as long as she can remember, Ashlie wanted to work in medicine. “I enjoy working with people and find a medical career to be very rewarding in many ways,” says Ashlie. “This field of work always keeps me wondering, thinking and learning. I just can’t imagine doing anything else.”

Ashlie grew up near Pittsville. She completed her Bachelor of Science in biology from UW - La Crosse. After working for two years doing in-home care for individuals who were unable to care for themselves, Ashlie completed a master’s degree in physician assistant studies from UW - Madison. During her clinical rotations, Ashlie spent time at Mile Bluff.

“As a student, I rotated through many different healthcare facilities. I felt most at home at Mile Bluff, and I loved the employees and patients,” explains Ashlie. “I was attracted to Mile Bluff because I love rural living and rural medicine. I feel that my values align well here.”

Outside of work, Ashlie enjoys spending time with her family and friends, traveling, and helping her dad on the cranberry marsh.
