“I grew up in Iowa and have been living and practicing in Texas for 21 years,” Coulter-Smith said. “I’ve been married for over 30 years, and we have two children. Our daughter is currently a student at Iowa State University in the veterinary medicine program and our son is a student at Oklahoma State University.
“We have been vacationing in the Minocqua area for almost 20 years and bought our cottage 12 years ago. We love the area and I was always sad to leave the Northwoods for the craziness of the city. I never expected a job to come up for me here, so I am really excited to have this opportunity.”
She enjoys water sports, biking, reading, travel and spending time with family and friends. She enjoys time at their cottage and is looking forward to making the Minocqua area her home.
