six questions with Dr. Katie Helgen

Six Questions with Dr. Katie Helgen

Dr. Helgen sees patients in the Northfield Clinic. She also treats in-patients as a hospitalist.

First job? McDonald’s. I started out as a fry girl, and then I moved on to drive-thru. Fryer was the only job available when I started; I’d come home with burns on my arms. I still have some of the scars to prove it.

Free time? I walk every day. I read prolifically, and I like to antique. I read a lot of world history, especially British histories, and a lot of mysteries.
