We created the Member Highlight series as a way to highlight some of our valued members throughout the year. This month we are featuring Sarah Krueger, a Physician Recruitment Coordinator with MidMichigan Health.
I have been involved in the Healthcare field for the past 15 years and specifically in Physician Recruitment for the last 3 years. I have a strong passion to make a difference in the communities we serve through our Health System.
I enjoy spending time at church leading worship as well as exercising and traveling. My relationship with God is of utmost importance along with family.
