Care Team

Dakota Child and Family Clinic is a non-profit health care clinic in Burnsville, MN that serves the health needs of children and adults regardless of their ability to pay. DCFC was formed by a group of community members who were patients of the now closed Eagan Child and Family Care. In 2012, Eagan Child and Family Care was faced with some difficult options and considered closing down. The community responded in a way that the owners could not have anticipated and decided to form a Board of Directors and launch the community resource you know as Dakota Child and Family Clinic as it stands today.

The mission of the clinic is three-pronged: to serve the health needs of children and adults from Dakota County and the surrounding areas; to be a resource to the community; and to provide educational opportunities for health professionals. Care is modeled within the Nurse Practitioner framework of patient-centered, high quality, holistic, and culturally inclusive. Nurse practitioners focus on helping patients achieve optimum health, however that is defined for the individual.

Meet the team that makes it possible!

Dr. Gretchen A. Moen
I am a certified primary care pediatric nurse practitioner and the founder of DCFC.  I hold a doctorate in nursing practice and believe that children and families deserve compassionate, high quality health care services regardless of their circumstances.  My interests lie in general pediatric care and pediatric behavioral health.  Each pillar of the three-pronged mission of DCFC reflects who I am as a health care professional and is grounded in service:  Service to our patients, service to our community, and service to the education of health care professionals.  At DCFC patients are first and foremost.  This is a place where I truly believe healthcare is for all and not for profit.

I am a certified adult nurse practitioner with an additional masters degree in counseling psychology as well as in nursing.  I have always been interested in mind/body connections and integrating alternative approaches with traditional ones whenever possible. I chose to be a member of the DCFC family because I get to work with like-minded people and wanted to be a part of providing quality care to all regardless of ability to pay.

Stephanie Kimmes

As a certified nurse practitioner in pediatrics and in family practice, I have the privilege of caring for the family. Children are my first love and those with special needs my focus since 2001. In my family nurse practitioner role, I enjoy caring for people of all ages, particularly for children and adults in foster care, young adults who transition from pediatrics to family practice, and women in all stages of life. I am married to a wonderful man and have 5 awesome children, 11 to 25 years old. I love the outdoors, gardening, movies, hanging out as a family, and tending to our chickens. DCFC is a place where I feel at home. I hope you do too.

I chose to be a member of the DCFC family because I want to do my part to build healthier communities. My family had been receiving care here for years. I had already experienced first hand DCFC’s commitment to their patients and the community. The staff of DCFC works tirelessly to provide health care for all, regardless of people’s ability to pay. They put theirselves on the frontline to be a part of the solution to address health care disparities and I am thrilled to be a part of their team.
