After growing up in Indiana, Liesl Pessl, RN, FNP, knew she wanted to move west and pursue a career in healthcare working with underserved populations.  She attended nursing school at Montana State University in Bozeman and worked in nursing before returning to school at the University of Wisconsin – Madison to become a nurse practitioner.  She moved back to Bozeman and began volunteering at the former Gallatin Community Clinic and was hired by CHP in 2001. 

 “CHP has allowed me to pursue my personal mission of working with the medically underserved and do it in a beautiful place,” Liesl said.  “Our patients truly appreciate our care.  The CHP approach allows our clinicians to provide exceptional care for those who otherwise would not receive any care, perhaps.”
