Stephanie Jurgens was born and raised in Des Moines. She graduated from Dowling Catholic High School and then began taking classes at Mercy for radiology.
Once she realized that she wanted to have more hands-on patient interaction, she switched gears and went to DMACC and obtained her Certified Medical Assistant degree. After practicing in family medicine for five years, she accepted an opportunity to work at the podiatry clinic at Des Moines University.
It was then she met both Dr. Paul Dayton and Dr. Mindi Dayton. After working at DMU for two years, she realized that she had a passion for the podiatry field.
Stephanie has one daughter, Parker. In her free time, she likes to spend time with her family and friends, scrapbooking, DIY crafts, riding motorcycles, and going to movies.
She has a love of music and enjoys a good book. She is excited to see what this next chapter in her career has to offer and she is thrilled to be part of a practice with such experienced and caring providers!
