Provider Bio down arrow

“I wanted to go into family medicine to provide primary care services to the community that I live in,” said Andrea Heller, Marshfield Clinic family nurse practitioner and Merrill native. “I enjoy discussing preventive services available to patients as well as lifestyle changes to help improve health. I also feel it is important to help patients with chronic illness learn to understand and manage their disease,” she said. Andrea sees children and adults for short-term illness and injury as well as managing chronic conditions such as asthma or diabetes.​​

She enjoys helping patients through diagnosis, treatment and education. “Patient education is very fulfilling. I treat dynamic health problems that affect many parts of my patients’ lives, so I work closely with them and their families during the treatment process. Careful listening to their concerns, providing quality care and education helps my patients continue to lead active lives.” Andrea says listening and respecting their wishes help her provide the best care possible. She chose to be part of Marshfield Clinic because its value of putting people first strongly mirrors her own beliefs.​​

​​A native of central Wisconsin, Andrea and her husband Ross, a mechanic, live with their young son, Prestin, in the country just north of Merrill. She says, “I’m very outdoorsy. Our family loves horseback riding, hunting, fishing, camping and working on our family farm.” Andrea says she especially loves riding her horse, Babe, and teaching Prestin how to ride.

​​Andrea is a board-certified family nurse practitioner and advanced practice nurse prescriber. She received her master’s degree in nursing from the University of Phoenix and her advanced practice nurse practitioner certification at Concordia University of Wisconsin.
