Meet Dr. Rider

I graduated from college at the University of Texas at Austin, and attended medical school at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston.  I completed my pediatric residency at Arkansas Children's Hospital in Little Rock. 


After residency I moved to Minneapolis and joined the staff at Ramsey Hospital, which is now Regions.  Over the years I worked a few different clinics in the Twin Cities, and most recently in Winona.  Being back closer to my family and living in St. Croix Falls in a tiny house is a dream come true!

I am mother to four wonderful children and three grandchildren.  They are the light of my life.  I have extended family in the Twin Cities.  We're all from Texas. . . long story!

I have many interests including gardening, cooking, being in nature, mosaic art and quilting.  I have published two children's books.  I love cats, dogs, bird watching, travel and reading. 

I can't wait to get to know your family!
