CCM Health Welcomes Ali Peterson, APRN, CNP, CNM
CCM Health is pleased to welcome Ali Peterson, APRN, CNP, CNM to their provider team. Ali attended North Dakota State University, South Dakota State University, and Frontier Nursing University. She is board certified by the Minnesota Board of Nursing, American Academy of Nurse Practitioners Certification Board, and American Midwifery Certification Board. Ali specializes in Family Practice and Midwifery Care and will begin seeing patients in September 2022.
Growing up, Ali’s mom was a nurse and a loving community caregiver. Ali admired her mother’s ability to connect with people and be a helper. Ali’s parents gave her lots of opportunities to care for people, from volunteering at the Appleton Nursing Home, babysitting neighbor’s children, and waitressing at the Apple Cafe. “Caregiving and service feed my soul and the science and art of nursing has been the best career choice I was lucky to have made early in my life!”
Ali is most passionate about women, children, and ensuring families have the healthiest start. Ali loves the challenge of helping people get to the root cause of their symptoms and that much of her work is wellness focused. She also adds the midwifery piece in the form of women’s health, pre-natal, birth, newborn, lactation, post-partum care, and assisting in the operating room with C-sections to her practice.
“When I chose CCM Health for my own maternity care with the birth of our sons, I felt known, supported, and safe. The growth of the obstetric services department at CCM Health is a testament to CCM Health’s commitment to patient safety, provider/family relationships, and the team’s ability to honor women’s preferences for their health care experiences. I’m so excited for the opportunity to do what I love with the team I trust and believe in!”
Ali resides near Dawson, Minnesota with her husband, Luke, and their three children. They farm regeneratively and organically a dozen different crops and have a small grass-fed beef herd. Ali and her family enjoy time in the kitchen and feeding people, going to the Lac qui Parle State Park, walks and hikes, being in nature, going to farmers markets, and she is looking forward to being an assistant coach this year for the Just For Kix program in Dawson.
