Here to Help: Rachelle, Sawtooth Mountain Clinic


My name’s Rachelle. I’m a certified navigator and I work at Sawtooth
Mountain Clinic in beautiful Grand Marais, and it just feels really good helping people. What’s unique about Grand Marais is its people–we’re
all, a lot of us, self-employed people and wear many hats in the community and have multiple
jobs. So a lot of people have qualified for a Minnesota
Health Care Program, and that has opened the door for a lot of folks to come in and seek
out help. I have seen many people leave my office with
tears of joy, and hugging me, and saying that now they can afford to get help to maybe fill
that prescription drug that once cost so much, to go see their doctor to correct a problem
that’s been ailing them, so that’s been what’s been most rewarding is now seeing how this
is changing people’s lives. I believe that our communities will be filled
with happier and healthier people.
