Meet Ashley Vermuelen , C-NP

Title: Certified Nurse Practioner

Ashley Vermeulen is a board-certified family nurse practitioner. She grew up in eastern South Dakota and has been involved in the healthcare profession for over 20 years. She started her nursing profession as a certified nursing assistant at the age of 14 and continued this role until she graduated with her Associate of Nursing degree from Dakota Wesleyan University in 2006. Her Bachelor of Nursing degree was completed in 2010 from the University of Phoenix-online. She is privileged to have worked in several different areas of nursing including Rehab; Neuro-Trauma Tele; Surgical ICU; and gastroenterology, both in clinical and procedural settings. She has been employed with the Rapid City Medical Center Gastroenterology group since 2014. In May 2020, Ashley graduated with her Masters's in Science degree from Mount Marty College. She is humbled and honored to be able to stay in the Gastroenterology Division and use her past knowledge and experience in her new, advanced role. Ashley enjoys all aspects of the gastroenterology profession and is not ready to focus on one condition, but rather learn and become well-rounded and educated in all parts of the specialty. Her passion is treating everyone with honor and respect while understanding the importance of establishing a strong, therapeutic relationship with cultural awareness and open communication. Ashley lives in Rapid City with her husband and two children. She enjoys all outdoor activities including running, hiking, hunting, fishing, and camping.
