Political Background

Originally planning a career in law or politics, Dr. Berg instead heard the calling of medicine.  The daughter of an esteemed surgeon father and lawyer/nurse mother, she learned the value of education and service.  In 2017, Dr. Berg semi-retired from medical practice, electing to focus on politics and incorporating those learned values. She  believes it is an important mission, and will allow her to continue contributing to a community that has done so much for her and her family. She is a proud graduate of the EMERGE Kentucky program!
