Shannon Rossio, MD, grew up in beautiful Carleton, Michigan where she spent most of her time riding horses and exploring the nearby woods and farms with her siblings and their dogs. Spending too much time around horses led to multiple hospital stays, a traumatic brain injury, and some hard lessons on life. After many years of learning what it meant to be a patient, she realized there was a need for doctors who had done time in a hospital bed. She completed her undergraduate studies in International Relations and Zoology at Michigan State University, then worked as a waitress, medical secretary and substitute teacher before gaining admittance into the “white coat club.” Once in medical school at University of Toledo, she participated in the Ohio Rural Health Scholars program and international medical missions. Through these experiences, Dr. Rossio fell in love with rural family medicine and its focus on holistic, “womb to tomb” care for patients and their families. She hopes to one day serve the rural people, communities and landscapes that have molded her and taught her right from wrong. Dr. Rossio never grew out of her love for the outdoors. To this day she spends her spare time trail riding, enjoying alpenglow up the North Fork, skijoring with her mutt, fishing for Arctic grayling, or drinking a beer on her back porch. She is a lover of big trucks, vintage bush planes, reading great literature, and always learning something new.
Dr. Rossio is a resident physician as part of the Family Medicine Residence of Western Montana.
