Dr. Willson is a pediatrician in private practice. She worked in Mason City, IA for 10 years, then moved to Hutchinson, MN in 1996 as the town’s first pediatrician. She worked in medical missions in Honduras and Haiti, and has had long-term involvement in medical teaching and professional relationships with pediatricians in Romania.
After arriving in Hutchinson 23 years ago, Dr. Willson adopted two daughters (one from Vietnam and one from China), and has since added to her family two wonderful sons-in-law, four beautiful grandchildren, with another grand-baby on the way this fall.
