Dr Barbara Kolp-Jurss
I received a degree in Dietetics from Mount Mary University in Milwaukee. During that time, I got to pair my passions of cooking and science while learning everything I could about diet and its effects on health.
After graduation, I spent a year in a large hospital in Georgia. Surrounded by dedicated medical professionals of varying specialties I was inspired to advance my own education and decided to pursue a medical degree at Mercer University School of Medicine.
After completing my residency at the Medical College of Wisconsin Children’s Hospital, I accepted a position at a multi-specialty medical clinic in Wisconsin and spent 20 years continually learning and connecting with patients of different backgrounds.
I chose to join Lake Country Pediatrics, S.C. to have the flexibility of an independent practice, finding comfort in knowing I can refer my patients to the very best specialists without having to stay within any specific healthcare network.
I am passionate about working directly with families and watching my patients grow into healthy adults. I firmly believe in patient-centered care and enjoy guiding parents and patients through the many developmental stages of growth from infancy through young adulthood. Talking and growing with my families is the best part of my job.
I am very excited to join the talented and dedicated team of pediatric doctors at LCP and look forward to meeting all of the families!
I am married with two adult step sons. In my free time I enjoy reading, kick-boxing, and taking rides with my husband in our Corvette.
