HCT: What do you like about being in the Marshfield community?
ML: It’s very diverse. You have a bunch of different types of people that live here, always something to do regardless if, you know, you’re an artsy person, you’re more of a food person. There’s always something. Top notch healthcare is great, having a clinic right down the road if you need it instead of having to travel.
HCT: What do you like to do when you are out and about in Marshfield?

HCT: Is there anything you would like to see changed about Marshfield?
ML: A little bit more job opportunity other than the healthcare industry, make it a little bit more diverse than just healthcare.
