Johanne Bates joined the Mankato Clinic @ Mapleton Family Practice in February, 2012. She received her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the College of St. Benedict and Master of Science in Nursing from the University of Colorado, Denver. She obtained advanced training in Geriatrics; which is the primary focus of her practice in Mapleton. Johanne's clinical interest is the management of chronic health conditions common in people over the age of fifty-five. "My goal is to provide patients with the knowledge, tools and guidance needed to lead healthy lives."
In her personal life, Johanne enjoys spending time with her family, staying active by biking, skiing, hiking, and jogging. An item on her 'bucket list' is to scuba dive off the coast of Thailand some day.
