Dr. Maureen McDonald
As a child, Maureen spent a lot of time in hospitals as her sister underwent treatment for Spina Bifida. It was at this early age that she knew she wanted to work in the medical field so she could help people and make a difference. During college, while volunteering for the Red Cross in Honduras, Maureen witnessed her first birth in a remote village in the mountains. She was truly moved by this experience and the seeds were planted for a career in OBGYN.
Dr. McDonald originally moved to Minnesota to attend St. Olaf College in Northfield where she earned her undergraduate degrees in Biology and Spanish. For graduate school, she attended Emory University in Atlanta where she earned her Master's in Public Health. She then attended the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and completed her residency at the University of Vermont/Fletcher Allen Healthcare specializing in Obstetrics and Gynecology.
Dr. McDonald appreciates the variety of OBGYN. She is interested in gynecologic surgery — and the full scope of services she can provide to her patients — from reproductive health to well woman care. She says, “I enjoy working with women across their lifespan and building relationships that are meaningful. And, I appreciate the clinic setting where I can help women of different ages, backgrounds and cultures.”
When she’s not taking care of patients, Dr. McDonald likes to travel, try new restaurants, and spend time with friends and family. Photography is a favorite hobby and reading “for fun” is always a pleasure.
