When looking to practice as a FNP, Lance knew he and his wife wanted to raise their family in Northern Michigan. Lance added, “I have always considered Northern Michigan as home. After moving away for a short period of time out of high school I realized very quickly the beauty and simplicity of Northern Michigan. McLaren Northern Michigan supports and is supported by such a wonderful community of people.”

Lance’s interest in medicine started at a young age. “I watched my mom put herself through nursing school while working full-time and raising a family. It was while watching my mom study subjects like anatomy and physiology, chemistry, and pharmacology that I started developing an interest in healthcare,” expressed Lance. It was after working as a nurse for 8 years that Lance decided continue his education and attend Chamberlain University to receive his Masters in Nursing to be a Family Nurse Practitioner. “Studying medicine is a privilege, I chose to advance my career in medicine so that I could help people on another level.”

Life is a journey filled with ups and downs and it is my goal to assist my patients in keeping their minds and bodies as healthy as possible to enjoy life whatever that may look like for them,” stated Lance.
